DE PERE, WI — Expanding domestic and international markets have driven Washworld Inc. to build a new plant and offices in a business park here, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
The Oct. 20 story stated that the company expects to break ground this month on a 50,000-square-foot building with an opening date planned for May 1. The new building will allow Washworld to expand its product line and workforce.
“The drivers behind us getting into a new facility, from the production side, are that in the last 18 months to two years we’ve really put an emphasis on growing our distribution network and helping them become better businesspeople,” Rich Andreas, vice president of sales and marketing with Washworld, said in the story. “In the last two years we’ve gone from little to no presence internationally to 25 distributors that have been in this business already.”
The company has 96 distributors worldwide, and the international distributors are active in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.
Though the company started with just one touch-free system, it now offers three touch-frees and one friction unit. The current business plan calls for the addition of ancillary items so the company can offer complete packages and be a one-stop shop for distributors and end customers.
Washworld’s current location is land locked, but the new property will give the company room for the new construction as well as future expansion.
