ETS Express Inc. Opens New Production Facility in Concord, North Carolina
ETS Express Inc., Oxnard, Calif., announced that it has opened a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facility in Concord, N.C. The new facility will increase ETS Express Inc.'s decorating and distribution capacity, and play a significant role in supplying its products to its customers shipping to the Midwest, Northeast and South regions of the U.S. This will provide shorter shipping times and lower freight costs than products shipping from its West Coast facilities in Oxnard, Calif.
The newly constructed industrial facility consists of more than 152,000 square feet of combined office, production and warehouse space that is uniquely designed for the company’s future growth in the region.
With this addition, ETS Express Inc. will more than double its current production capacity by the middle-to-end of 2016.
“This exciting expansion of our family-owned business to this area truly signifies our East Coast customers’ support and loyalty to our company over the last 30 years while we operated solely from the West Coast," said Sharon Eyal, CEO of ETS Express Inc. "We can now serve them better and repay them for that loyalty by building a beautiful production facility in their own backyard. We’ve had plans to expand our production operations to the East Coast for several years, and we are very happy with our decision to invest in the Charlotte area. We firmly believe that it provides us the perfect location for our expansion and we plan to add more than 200 jobs to the local economy in the next 18 months.”
ETS Express Inc. has been running preliminary production on customer orders while opening this new facility. It will continue to run and ship as many East Coast-bound orders as possible while expanding production capacity and incoming inventory, and plans to be fully operational with expanded production and shipping by June 2016.
