BendPak Inc. has added yet another large-scale expansion to its complex. After nearly seven months of construction, the completed 70,000-square-foot shipping and receiving facility, which sits just one block away from BendPak’s main headquarters, is officially open for business.
To commemorate the milestone, BendPak hosted a public ribbon-cutting ceremony on Feb. 10. Keynote speeches were delivered by BendPak’s management on the role and vision of the company in growing jobs in California and beyond.
Don Henthorn, BendPak president and owner, expressed excitement and optimism about his company’s direction. “It’s finally here,” he said. “Couldn’t be prouder. This building will let us process the increasing number of orders we have for large freight shipments.”
The company announced that its sales have increased dramatically in recent years and cited a high level of company-wide success as the primary influence for the new expansion.
“The best part is that we’ve been able to work as normal while expanding,” said Jeff Kritzer, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “It’s all rolling out smoothly, which will allow us to put even more people to work in the coming months.” Kritzer also indicated that a second on-site warehouse project, even more ambitious than this latest expansion, is expected to begin construction in late 2017.
