According to company officials, this new location will allow Raven Engineered Films to provide a heightened level of service and faster product delivery to customers of its Energy, Geomembrane and Construction markets. At the new facility, Raven will custom-fabricate materials and strategically warehouse products to better serve this geographic region.
Raven Engineered Films, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Raven Industries, has established a well-known reputation for manufacturing and supplying high performance flexible films and sheeting to major markets throughout the United States and abroad.
Raven Engineered Films said it is committed to producing essential film and sheeting to preserve and enhance customer investments while protecting Earth's resources. The company is dedicated to developing targeted product solutions that not only solve precise application challenges but integrate sustainable environmental design practices for long-range performance.
Expanding fabrication to the U.S. East Coast allows Raven Engineered Films to continue growing its core product lines while simultaneously executing Raven Composites, one of the company’s two strategic platforms for growth announced in November.
“We are committed to our core business and customers,” said Anthony Schmidt, Vice President and General Manager of Raven Engineered Films. “Having a presence on the East Coast will allow us to respond more efficiently to the needs of our customers.”
Raven will begin operations in Waynesboro with approximately five team members in early 2020 and will expand based on business demand.
Raven Engineered Films’ world-class manufacturing operations include seven locations nationwide, complete with state-of-the-art equipment and proven product expertise to provide the most innovative and targeted product solutions in the industry. Capabilities include multi-layer blown sheeting, reinforced cast/lamination, conversion, custom fabrication, geosynthetics design-build expertise and certified installation services through Raven CLI Construction, Inc.
“The City of Waynesboro was built on the foundation of manufacturing firms like Raven,” shared Greg Hitchin, Director of Economic Development and Tourism for the City of Waynesboro. “We are thrilled to welcome them to our business community.”
