Walpole Outdoors, a leading provider of wood and AZEK solid cellular PVC outdoor structures, has expanded its manufacturing facility in Pittsfield, Me.
The additional 9,000-sq. ft. space will build upon its existing 90,000-sq. ft. manufacturing footprint in Maine, with the goal of increasing capacity, improving efficiency, and reducing cost of quality. The new space includes manufacturing areas, as well as two additional loading docks, which will allow increased freight capacity.
“This expansion is going to be critical for us,” said Robert Hayes, VP of manufacturing. “We had begun to outgrow our existing space, so this will allow us to innovate and meet the rising demand for Walpole products in the marketplace.”
The increased space will also add by as many as 20 jobs.
