Expanding in Elizabethtown positions Aquatic optimally to meet the growing needs of our customers. And even with expansion, we are keeping our plants and team members at home – not half a world away like so many other U.S. manufacturers.
Anaheim, California (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Aquatic – the leader in innovative and inspirational bathware – today announced that the company is expanding operations at its Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania plant to provide even better service for customers, especially in the Northeastern United States, as the housing market continues to gain strength.
The 108,000 square-foot Central Pennsylvania plant – part of the company’s nationwide network of six strategically located manufacturing facilities – has resumed production of Aquatic’s full line of DuraCore(TM) gelcoat showers, tubs and tub-showers. The plant also is now assembling the company’s entire Freedomline offering which consists of accessible products.
Additionally, Aquatic’s FRP mold shop for all of its plants, which has long been housed in Elizabethtown, recently was enlarged. The plant’s shipping capacity is growing, too -- many of the 40 state-of-the-art trucks and trailers that Aquatic plans to add to its national shipping fleet this year will be based there, ensuring swift delivery to regional customers.
“Expanding these key functions in Elizabethtown positions Aquatic optimally to meet the growing needs of our customers in and north of Pennsylvania,” said Stuart Leigh, President, Aquatic. “In particular, this location lets us offer quick ship programs that deliver products to our customers in the region in days, not weeks.”
Leigh also reiterated Aquatic’s continuing commitment to products made in America.
“Even as Aquatic expands, we are keeping our plants and team members at home – close to customers, not half a world away like so many other U.S. manufacturers,” Leigh added. “This enables us to closely monitor and manage all aspects of production and shipping so we always deliver the highest quality products on time and in perfect condition. We also are staunchly committed to employing American workers – it’s the right thing to do and it supports our local communities, which helps the U. S. economy grow.”
Aquatic offers the largest and most innovative selection of tubs, showers and bathware accessories. The company’s world-leading Hydrotherapy, Everyday and Accessible lines include more than 300 products for virtually every need – all inspired and made in America. Based in Anaheim, California, Aquatic serves distributors, builders, plumbing professionals, architects, designers and consumers through a nationwide network of state-of-the-art facilities for manufacturing, distribution and support.
