Additional space supports future growth
ST. CLOUD, Minn. (August 29, 2014) – St. Cloud-based plastic fabricator Aubright announced the acquisition of a new 80,000-square-foot facility to support its goals for future expansion as the company continues to deliver custom plastic fabricated components, products and display fixtures that meet the unique demands of customers in retail and visual merchandising, manufacturing and power sports markets. The newly purchased building provides Aubright with double the amount of space for manufacturing and warehousing capabilities.
The existing and newly acquired facility is located just north of the company’s current operations. Initially, only a portion of the 80,000-square-feet will be used, with the company reserving the remaining space for future operations as Aubright’s customers’ needs continue to expand.
‘We are committed to helping our customers accelerate their business results as they come to us with increasingly complex applications and challenges,” said Sandy Berling, CEO and Founder. “This expansion helps us support that mission by creating the opportunity to expand our operations as our customers expand their needs for our services and capabilities.”
Berling said the availability of the acquired facility presented an excellent opportunity for Aubright’s future expansion plans given that the building is located near the company’s current manufacturing and warehouse operations.
“We’re thrilled to acquire a facility that is next door to our current location, especially since we look forward to continued growth and success in St. Cloud,” said Berling. “At the end of the day, this points to a bright future for Aubright and our employees, as well as our customers.” Berling added that some Aubright employees have already begun working out of the newly acquired building and that additional positions would be added as the business grows and needs arise.
The latest news from Aubright comes as the company completes its rebranding from Goldleaf Plastics to Aubright, using the gold symbol “Au” from the periodic table to tie to their past while also shining a light on a bright future.
