TriMas streamlines its manufacturing footprint

Written on: July 18, 2023 by SprayTM

TriMas Packaging group announced it will be closing a 160,000 sq ft leased manufacturing facility located in Rohnert Park, CA, and in turn, will reposition all of the production assets to other existing U.S. production locations. The company expects the transition to be completed by the end of 2023.

Additionally, TriMas Packaging will be consolidating two manufacturing facilities located in China into one new facility that will provide improved efficiencies to better serve Asian markets. The firm’s existing facilities in Hangzhou and Haining will be closing, with production relocating to a new, larger facility in the Haining region. Certain production will also be moved to other regions in North America, as the firm seeks to localize production, where necessary, to better serve its customers.

In addition, TriMas Packaging will also be insourcing a third-party warehouse and distribution center in New Jersey to directly capture logistics savings.

“While decisions to relocate production and distribution are never easy, we are opportunistically taking advantage of the current lower demand environment to better position our TriMas Packaging group for improved performance in the future,” said Thomas Amato, TriMas President & CEO.

“We are committed to providing a seamless transition, and continuity of supply and service for our customers, while we drive continuous improvement across our business,” Amato added.
