I.W. Tremont has committed to additional production space at its Hawthorne, New Jersey facility marking the company’s second major expansion in 2020. An additional 10,000 square feet of warehousing and light manufacturing space was added to its primary facility. The new space comes only 5 months after a 10,000 square foot expansion earlier in the year increasing the company’s square footage to 50,000 square feet in northern New Jersey. Intended to further speed the company’s already impressively rapid order fulfillment, this new space allows for increased storage of raw material and customer committed finished products. The location continues to be ideal with close proximity to major trucking hubs, high density and diverse populations, colleges and universities, major research and testing facilities as well as all three major airports serving the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut tri-state area.
The additional space allows overall increased efficiency and flow of production. “Having seen a dramatic increase in demand for several of our core product line items during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have responded extremely well to meet each and every deadline,” said James A. Averso, I.W. Tremont Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Some of the greatest challenges became delays and unpredictable inbound raw material deliveries,” he added.
In leveraging the addition of a second production shift instituted earlier in the year, I.W. Tremont plans to continue its increased manufacturing capacity by utilizing this new space in expanding clean room assembly operations, wet-lab paper making development and diagnostics material conversion. This expansion facilitates larger on-hand inventories and additional work cells permitting increased surge production capabilities above and beyond the long established just-in-time (JIT) and lean manufacturing (Kanban) systems relied on by many I.W. Tremont customers.
