Today, we are also excited to announce the expansion of our Southern California plant.
“Our business is steadily growing,” says David Cisneros, COO. “From the beginning, our geographical location has made us unique. We are one of the few wet wipe manufacturers on the West Coast. This expansion will help solidify our leadership position in the region and our commitment to continue manufacturing in the USA.”
In addition to the 65,000 square-foot operation, which opened in 2006 in Bucyrus, Ohio, two new sites in Chino, California will add another 155,000 square feet of production and warehousing environment to the company’s existing, 130,000-square-foot solar-powered manufacturing plant. The new facilities will start operating toward the end of the year.
“When I first moved from Taiwan to open the shop, I had one machine to make wet wipes. My factory was about the size of a two-car garage,” recalls Eve Yen, the founder and CEO. “Here we are 22 years later. We have much more to achieve but we are growing fast. We are making the investment to increase our manufacturing capacity and capabilities. We are doing this to service our customers better and faster, and take on bigger contracts.”
One such new capability will be viscous filling using fully customizable, shaped trial size foil sachets. “Our core strength is making wipes, but we also fill liquids for many of our beauty and personal care customers,” explains Cisneros. “With the facility expansion, we can look to other contract manufacturing areas for future growth, while not losing the sight of what got us here — the wipes.”
