KPS Global Opens a New Manufacturing Facility in Goodyear, Arizona
State-of-the-art Plant is a Strategically Located Flagship Facility
(Fort Worth, TX, January 18, 2017) A ribbon cutting on January 26th will celebrate KPS Global’s newest facility in Goodyear, Arizona. The Company was formed in late 2015 by D Cubed Group, LLC, a private investment group, to acquire multiple entities and create the clear leader in the walk-in refrigeration and freezer market. KPS Global has operated under its leadership team with a vision for expanding innovation as well as growth within the sectors in which it operates.
The Goodyear facility represents a significant investment supporting KPS Global innovations, efficiency and quality. This new state-of-the art facility has the square footage, upgrades and equipment that will serve current KPS Global customers and has the capacity to meet future demand.
"Our Goodyear facility is a winner," noted Jack Bowling, CEO of KPS Global. "It is strategically located in relationship to our other manufacturing locations and is laid out and equipped to facilitate our employees' work, as they endeavor to surpass our newest quality and efficiency goals. Our customers are the real winners. When they purchase our walk-in products and especially when they have us address their entire project from the cooler or freezer to the refrigeration, doors, lighting, shelving and complete installation; they are getting the best products and installation in the business. In Goodyear, our employees got the facility they wanted and deserved. None of our employees have been displaced and we anticipate significantly increasing head count," Bowling said.
Georgia Lord, Mayor of Goodyear, AZ added, “The city of Goodyear is thrilled to have been chosen for the KPS Global expansion project. Goodyear is becoming a hub of manufacturing companies due to our highly skilled workforce and our ability to adapt our processes to meet a company’s schedule of operations. It is always rewarding to watch companies and their ownership reinvest in excellence and growth, and KPS Global is certainly a tremendous example. We look forward to continuing to see KPS grow in Goodyear and very much appreciate their additional employment of citizens in our community.”
KPS Global is investing more than $2.3 million in the Goodyear facility, which opened in December 2016. Multiple, sophisticated manufacturing lines creating panels for walk-in refrigeration equipment are located within the plant and there is additional space when needed to accommodate the company's growth.
