BendPak Continues Aggressive Expansion

In its next step in what leadership describes as a “long series of expansions” to come, BendPak Inc. is set to start construction on a new 50,000+ sq. ft. facility in early 2018. This is the second year in a row the company has grown its footprint.

In its next step in what leadership describes as a “long series of expansions” to come, BendPak Inc. is set to start construction on a new 50,000+ sq. ft. facility in early 2018. This is the second year in a row the company has grown its footprint.

Early in 2017, BendPak management unveiled a 70,000-sq.-ft. expansion to improve supply chain management and facilitate their growth initiatives. According to Javier Arias, BendPak’s vice president of operations, it was crucial that the 2017 and 2018 expansions remain onsite and on schedule.

“25 years ago when we purchased our current acreage, the aim was to expand our facilities and operational efficiencies as sales demanded,” he explained. “Although our recent growth has accelerated faster than expected, BendPak has remained successful at keeping ahead of the curve.”

According to the company, the new construction is intended to put the manufacturer of car lifts, parking lifts, pipe benders and air compressors in a position of strength, setting itself for “another generation of success.”

After spending 50 years of oversight with the company, BendPak founder and President Donald Henthorn is excited to see all of the company’s hard work come to fruition. “When you move as many large products as we do, you need a lot of space to store them,” he said. “We’re making that space now and for the future.”

Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jeff Kritzer added, “Our renewed focus on customer experience solutions and our pledge to become leaders in same-day-shipping mean both inventory and our ability to move freight are in a constant state of refinement,” adding playfully, “We’re in all-out attack mode.”
