BERRYVILLE, Va.—Trelleborg Marine Systems has bolstered its base in the U.S. with the addition of a new headquarters and manufacturing facility that features more advanced polyurethane equipment and capabilities.
Located in Berryville, the new site features 36,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 9,000 square feet that's used for sales and business development. The plant manufactures urethane foam-based fenders and buoys.
Its newest U.S. complex replaces a building in Clear Brook, Va. All employees and machinery at the Clear Brook site have been relocated to the Berryville facility, a company spokeswoman said.
In addition, the firm has invested heavily in new, advanced polyurethane spraying and foam winding equipment, which will increase production efficiencies at the new plant, she said. Financial details were not disclosed.
Trelleborg Marine Systems, a business unit of Trelleborg A.B., has closed the older Clear Brook factory.
