Maxi-Movers Expands Operations
Maxi-Movers, the manufacturing division of Chem-Tainer Industries, West Babylon, NY, recently confirmed that its new 7,000-square-foot factory in Northern California is nearing completion. The additional California facility will be Chem-Tainer’s 11th factory, bringing the company’s total number of manufacturing sites capable of offering full product lines for the textile services industry to 20, according to a news release.
“Knock on wood but this project and site selection’s been a breeze thus far,” said Christopher Glen, director of Maxi-Movers. “The people here are great and we’re excited to become a part of their community. This factory nicely complements our plant in Los Angeles, boosting the West Coast’s manufacturing capacity, which particularly benefits our Pacific Northwest customers by reducing delivery times and freight costs.”
In addition to its California-based manufacturing facility, Maxi-Movers has expanded in several markets recently, according to the release. “This past spring we celebrated the opening of a newly constructed factory just outside Atlanta,” said Tony Lamb, vice president of Chem-Tainer Industries. “It was important to accomplish our goals for the Georgia plant in their entirety and use that momentum to concentrate on completing a new factory in Texas on schedule for the summer of 2015.”
Glen added that, “Maxi-Movers urgently needed to increase production capabilities to meet this decade’s rapidly accelerating demand, so new molding operations were a necessity. Strategically, our coverage zone now fully blankets the U.S. and we can better serve our customers in South Central and Northwest with even more convenient shipping points. It’s just one of those unique circumstances where everybody wins; I’m excited to be a part of it and eager to announce the next phase, when appropriate to do so.”
