In June 2013, Maccaferri Inc. opened a new 49,000-sq ft manufacturing facility in the Sacramento, Calif., area, which is more than double the company’s current space. Located in the McClellan Business Park, formerly the McClellan Air Force Base, the new facility offers convenient access to major interstates and highways.
The larger space will accommodate an additional production line for Double Twist Mesh, which will also produce Rock Mesh HR (High Resistance), Maccaferri’s newest rockfall protection product. This new line is expected to require additional personnel, which will create more employment opportunities for the residents of California. Other benefits of the new location include increased warehouse storage and improved office space.
Logistically, the new location will allow Maccaferri to better service rockfall prone areas with improved delivery times, reduced shipping costs and a full range of their expansive portfolio of rockfall products currently offered. It will serve as a centralized hub fully dedicated to the rockfall protection business. The new location will also allow for storage of Maccaferri Wirand Steel Fibers, used in pre-cast concrete, industrial flooring and tunneling applications.
The new facility is located at 4242 Forcum Ave., Suite 400, McClellan, CA 95652.
