American Excelsior Company Expands Norwalk, Ohio, Manufacturing Plant
The new building will solely be devoted to the production and fabrication of flexible foams. This will allow American Excelsior to use the current 76,882 square feet building to produce and warehouse products for the Earth Science Division. Construction of the new facility is expected to start this spring and to be completed in early fall.
"We have experienced strong growth over the past couple of years and we have simply outgrown our current building. We are excited to develop a workable plan to build on the current property, as it prevents us from relocating. Our associates help make the difference in the markets we serve and expanding right here in Norwalk is a win-win for us, our associates, and the local community," said Casey Poignon, General Manager of the Norwalk plant.
According to company officials, the current manufacturing facility is divided into two separate manufacturing operations. One part of the plant is dedicated to fabricating foam products for the Company's Flexible Foam Division, which provides foam products used in packaging, furniture, medical, and many other industries. The other manufacturing operation produces a variety of products used in the construction industry to help erosion control and sediment runoff products as part of American Excelsior's Earth Science Division.
Established in 1888, Arlington Texas-based American Excelsior Company is a manufacturer and distributor of packed, cushioned and engineered products for flexible foams, erosion control, and wood fibers.
