ARDEX Americas recently announced a major expansion of their Aliquippa, Pennsylvania manufacturing facility, effectively doubling its size. This is the third such expansion for the company this year. In February ARDEX released news of an extension for the Dallas, Georgia plant and is also currently working to expand the manufacturing footprint in Stockton, California. The Aliquippa addition, which is the site of the Americas headquarters, includes significant increases in warehouse and production capabilities to better facilitate ARDEX’s growth strategy.
ARDEX Americas President, Jesse David explains, "We continue to experience strong growth throughout the Americas and across all business segments. This expansion is a direct result of our growth and allows ARDEX to continue to provide innovative products to our existing customer base as well as meet the future needs of an expanding market. We are committed to investing capital into our plants and infrastructure to provide the very highest levels of service and support that our customers demand."
The expansion includes the addition of a new production operation and additional capacity to support future growth. ARDEX Director of Operations Jim Masterson added, “We wanted to enhance the capabilities of our operation group and increase efficiencies in the long term. This will help both production and storage and position us well for the future.” The Aliquippa expansion project will continue in phases for the rest of 2017 and into 2018 but will have no effect on how customers are serviced.
