Solmax announced June 18 that it is expanding its operations and establishing a manufacturing facility in Nevada.
The manufacturing facility will be fully operational by mid-2020.
Following the successful integration of the Solmax and GSE Environmental businesses into one combined global entity, Solmax’s goal is to continue to grow its industry leadership position in the geosynthetics sector with strength, reach, capacity and talent to reshape the geosynthetics industry.
“We continue to capitalize on the acquisition of the GSE Environmental business, which proved to be highly successful in terms of profitability in 2018,” said Jean-Louis Vangeluwe, president and CEO of Solmax. “As a result, our ongoing projects are fundamental to our continued growth and one of them is to better service our clients wherever they are located. By establishing a manufacturing base in the western USA, we will decrease our lead time from the West, reinforce our competitive advantage and be able to lead the change by bringing to market innovative products that are more reliable, stronger and resistant to contaminants.”
“We are excited to establish a presence in Nevada and we hope to contribute in creating quality jobs for our community,” Vangeluwe adds.
