Expansion Will Improve Customer Service and Add Jobs AIRMATIC INC, a distributor of industrial equipment and machinery, announces an expansion of its Distribution and Service Center in Malvern, PA. The addition to its 2008 constructed facility will double the size of AIRMATIC's warehouse storage zone and enlarge the size of its Service Shop. The Expansion will enable AIRMATIC to increase its inventory of Core Products, including its WORKMASTER line of private branded products, to further improve product / service availability and save Customers time and money on shipping and handling costs. The expanded facility, located in the Three Tun Industrial Park, will be nearly 50,000 sf and add up to 3 new Warehouse jobs. "We're very excited about the addition to our facility which opens mid-January" says Billy Dougherty, AIRMATIC's Vice President and fourth generation owner. "When we built our facility in 2007, we had the foresight to get the plans and permits for the addition pre-approved, but we didn't think we would be building so soon. We've been fortunate that, after the serious downturn in 2008, we've experienced double-digit growth every year since, adding jobs in Sales, Marketing, and Shipping and Receiving. We need the space if we're to continue to live our motto '. . . HELPING PRODUCERS EXCEL!', and this investment further demonstrates our commitment to our Customers, Suppliers, and Associates."
