There's some big news in the offing... Monarch Brands has purchased the Atkore Corporation's manufacturing facility to serve as our new East Coast headquarters. The 300,000 square foot facility will give Monarch Brands the ability consolidate three Eastcoast warehouses. We will benefit from efficiencies in shipping, receiving, and light manufacturing while providing room for future growth.
We expect to move late Q1 early Q2 2017 as there is much work to be done. The facility was previously fitted to manufacture industrial conduit. Before settlement, all manufacturing equipment had to be removed from the premises, including a 100 Ton diesel locomotive engine (much to the chagrin of our Marketing Director, who wanted to brand and keep it).
We are all thrilled to be moving forward with this growth opportunity. We look forward to taking our wholesale microfiber, wholesale institutional towel, and commercial linen service to new heights for you in 2017.
We will keep you updated via a photo blog as we proceed with the renovations.
