Our business is centered on our commitment to constantly enhance innovation and improve standards across the industry. With this in mind, I am delighted to announce that we will be relocating from our current site in Clear Brook, Virginia, to a brand new, state-of-the-art facility in Berryville.
Due for completion toward the end of the year, the new site will house a 45,000 square foot manufacturing facility for foam-based marine fenders and buoys, as well as a 9,000 square foot sales and business development office.
We’re also investing heavily in new, advanced polyurethane spraying and foam winding equipment, which will further increase production facilities.
With testing absolutely critical to ensuring our portfolio remains at the leading edge, the new facility will also contain a new state-of-the-art high speed test rig capable of testing full size rubber and foam fenders in accordance with PIANC guidelines. While we already have a world leading materials testing program, the addition of these full scale testing facilities will ensure our products perform above and beyond customer expectations.
Following the recent opening of our new sales and business development office in Houston, Texas, this move yet again demonstrates our ongoing commitment to continually improving our U.S. operations. Our Clear Brook facility has served us well, but we must always ensure we are best placed to meet our customers’ ever-growing demands, and the new facility ensures we are well placed to do just that.
The new Berryville facility will be strongly supported by our engineering and design center of excellence in Ahmnedabad, India.
