Winchester, VA – Monoflo International, a premier manufacturer of quality, injection-molded reusable transport packaging, has begun construction of a new 325,000 square foot storage and logistics facility, located at 100 Ezra Ln. in Winchester, Virginia. This expansion will double Monoflo’s existing warehouse space to accommodate the tens of millions of plastics totes, pallets, trays, and bulk containers the company manufactures each year.
John Johnson, Senior Vice President at Monoflo International highlighted the growth of the company sharing,
“Our growth is more than just increasing the number of facilities and machines in our operation. It’s about providing value and service to our customers. Monoflo is built on a commitment to continuous improvement. We have seen a gap in the market for logistic services as well as product, and combining the two under the Monoflo umbrella will allow us to help our customers better manage the flow of products into their operations.”
The new warehouse is strategically positioned between Monoflo’s two local production facilities and immediately off Interstate 81, delivering freight cost advantages to customers. The new facility will also support customers who use Monoflo Logistics Services, a soon-to-be released solution from Monoflo. This service offers flexible short-term storage for customers to manage the inflow of reusable packaging to their sites.
“From the site selection to the design and development of the building, every decision we made in the execution of the new facility was driven by how we can best support our customers,” reports Evan Hinkle, Warehouse & Logistics Manager at Monoflo International. “We employ lean warehouse management best practices to accurately and efficiently store and move inventory and leverage our relationships with freight companies to deliver our customers’ orders on time and on budget.”
Monoflo operates three facilities in North America and employs over 325 employees across the United States and Mexico. This new storage and logistics facility is just one of many recent expansions as Monoflo continues to invest in infrastructure to meet the growing demand from customers across many industries, including, food and beverage, automotive, general manufacturing, and automated systems and warehousing.
Ben Waterman, Business Development Manager at Monoflo International shares, “We are continually looking for opportunities to provide additional solutions and values for our customers and gain organizational and manufacturing efficiencies. This project does this, and we are very excited about growing our logistics services to the next level and beyond.”
Monoflo is excited to continue its support in the local community, engaging ten local Virginia contracting companies to execute this expansion.
“We are very pleased to continue our investment and commitment here in Frederick County, a locale that we have successfully partnered with for nearly fifty years,” Waterman shared.
The target completion date for this facility is in the summer of 2023. Once the transition to the new facility is complete, Monoflo plans to convert the current warehouse to additional manufacturing space, increasing production capacity and shortening lead times to continue to better support its customers and their project timelines.
