Airtech International has expanded its USA facilities with the addition of a 140,000 sq. ft (13,000 sq. m.) distribution facility located in Chino, California.
The expansion doubles Airtech’s plant facilities in California. This new warehousing and shipping facility is being added to improve efficiency and delivery schedules for Airtech’s customers around the globe. The new building is expected to be operational in September 2007. The addition of this new distribution facility also allows Airtech to increase their manufacturing at Airtech’s existing plant in Huntington Beach, California.
According to Jeff Dahlgren, President of Airtech Advanced Materials Group, “New generation commercial aircraft like the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A380 have incorporated extensive use of composites materials in structural applications resulting in a greater need for our value added products and services. This significant market growth requires the expansion of our existing manufacturing capabilities and is critically important in meeting the future needs of our customers. Our new distribution facility in Chino really solves two issues; better efficiency and service from a product distribution standpoint, and increased space at our existing Huntington Beach, California plant allowing a significant boost in manufacturing capacity. We have always tried to view ourselves as partners in our customers' businesses, so as they continue to grow, we felt we had to grow with them.”
