Romac Industries Plans Goodyear, Arizona, Production-Distribution Campus
The 60,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution facility will include powder coating, light assembly of pipe fittings for new construction as well as couplings and repair products to support the waterworks industry infrastructure. Production is scheduled for December 2023.
“Expanding our manufacturing operations in Arizona aligns with our long-standing commitment to domestic manufacturing,” said Josh Larkin, President of Romac. “Access to a skilled labor force, proximity to key customers in a high growth market and access to critical supply chain vendors were all factors that led to the decision to invest in our new Goodyear location. We will be able to leverage these advantages to support our continued success.”
Romac Industries designs and manufactures innovative products that connect pipelines including water, oil, and gas. The company serves its wholesale distributors, water districts, underground contractors, and design engineers primarily across North America in both residential and commercial construction.
“We are excited Romac has selected Goodyear for its sustainable manufacturing and distribution operations, diversifying Arizona’s manufacturing ecosystem and driving future economic growth,” noted Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA). “We’re grateful to Josh Larkin and the entire Romac team for their commitment to Arizona and we look forward to supporting their future success.”
“Romac’s history of innovation and dedication to high-quality manufacturing of waterworks and wastewater products align with Greater Phoenix’s goal of businesses contributing to increased efficiency and effectiveness of the region’s water use,” added Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. "With a highly skilled workforce and advanced infrastructure that enables businesses to innovate, compete and succeed in today's global marketplace, we look forward to our continued partnership with Romac Industries as they bolster the manufacturing ecosystem.”
