Wastequip has opened a manufacturing facility in Blacksburg, S.C.—the second in a series of expansions to be announced this year.
After extensive research, Blacksburg was selected because of its easy access to the I-85 corridor, making it a prime location for customers throughout the Southeast.
The Blacksburg facility will initially produce front-load and roll-off containers, as well as grease containers and specialty products. The facility offers space for on-site inventory to serve customers quickly. It also will have capacity to manufacture compactors and other Wastequip products.
The opening of the South Carolina facility is just one of a series of strategic Wastequip manufacturing expansions designed to boost capacity to better meet customer demand. The ability to locate Wastequip manufacturing facilities in areas of key customer density will mean even faster service, greater product availability, more competitive freight rates, and the convenience of on-site pick-up.
“Our investment in this area is evidence of our commitment to customers and to a region where we had lost focus,” said Marty Bryant, Wastequip CEO. “As the supplier of choice for several large national haulers, our expansion strategy is key to continuing to provide the waste industry’s best products at the most competitive rates and delivery times. We look forward to making more exciting expansion announcements this summer.”
