Schenectady, NY, United States, 2007/03/08 - As part of its global commitment to strengthen customer service, client relations, and manufacturing/testing capabilities, Fortitech, Inc. announces several major expansions in the United States, Malaysia and Mexico.
Fortitech, Inc. will be relocating its Fontana, California facility to a larger, state-of-the-art manufacturing and laboratory facility located in Ontario, California, about 14 miles from Fontana. Fortitech’s worldwide headquarter facility located in New York, will be adding 35,000 square feet of warehouse/manufacturing space to the existing 95,000 square foot facility. These expansions will make way for bigger blending capacities, enhanced technical capabilities, and increased customer service support.
Fortitech, Asia Pacific will be constructing a brand new, state-of-the-art manufacturing and laboratory facility located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This major investment will continue our commitment to serving custom nutrient premix demands globally and will position us to better serve rapidly growing markets such as China, Indonesia and Australia.
Also experiencing increased growth is Fortitech Mexico which will be relocating to a larger distribution office in southern Mexico City. The new location will be in closer proximity to the city’s business district and airport for enhanced commerce capabilities.
Overall, these new facilities and upgrades will cap off a more than $22 million global expansion which includes the company’s new manufacturing and testing facility in Gadstrup, Denmark, which opened in 2005. The Ontario, California facility is expected to open late this summer and the New York expansion is anticipated to be complete by this fall. Fortitech, Mexico will be transitioned by early spring and the brand new Malaysia plant is projected to be fully functional by 2008.
