ETS Express opens distribution facility in Concord, needs 200 workers (NC)
CONCORD, N.C. — ETS Express has opened a new state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facility in Concord, North Carolina. It will include 200 new manufacturing and warehouse jobs.
The new facility will substantially increase ETS Express’ decorating and distribution capacity and play a significant role in supplying its products to its loyal customers shipping to the Midwest, Northeast, and South regions of the U.S. This will provide shorter shipping times and much lower freight costs than products shipping from its West Coast facilities in Oxnard, California.
The newly-constructed industrial facility consists of over 152,000 square feet of combined office, production, and warehouse space that is uniquely designed for the company’s future growth in the region. The building location, design, equipment, and layout have been planned in a way that will exceed the company’s current capabilities. With this addition, ETS 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. We can now serve them better and repay them for that loyalty by building a beautiful production facility in their own backyard,” said Sharon Eyal, CEO of ETS Express. “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 eighteen months.”
