BendPak Inc. is developing 33 acres in Mobile County. Ala., to expand its light manufacturing, assembly, product development and testing, and distribution footprint. The industrial complex will also house additional space for marketing and sales support teams.
The site is a few miles from BendPak's existing and recently expanded East Coast campus.
“Our business growth through diversification model is opening new doors and business opportunities,” says Jeff Kritzer, BendPak president and CEO. “This is a strategic move as we anticipate continuing growth across our automotive and consumer markets. The state-of-the-art facilities will allow us to optimize our supply chain and distribution processes, enabling faster and more efficient product delivery.”
The site will feature several large multi-use buildings, and it's been designed to optimize supply chain and distribution initiatives to minimize handling time and expedite customer deliveries.
“This investment reaffirms our commitment to delivering exceptional products and services to our customers,” says Don Henthorn, BendPak owner and founder. “This new cutting-edge complex, coupled with our team’s expertise, will empower BendPak to provide end-to-end solutions that not only meet, but exceed customer expectations.”
This expansion is the latest step in a six-year building boom. The company has twice expanded its Santa Paula, Calif., campus, added and expanded a site near the Port of Mobile, and opened a new global headquarters in Agoura Hills, Calif.
The car lift and automotive service equipment manufacturer's brands include Ranger, Autostacker, QuickJack, Cool Boss, GrandPrix, MaxJax, Dannmar and Ergochair.
