Inland to Add 50,000 Square Feet to Manage Continued Growth, Along With New Presses, Staff
LA CROSSE, Wis.—June 9, 2015—Inland is excited to announce the addition of 50,000 square feet of facilities near its Airport Road location here. The new space, which will house Inland’s finished goods warehousing and distribution, follows Inland’s rebrand announcement in March of this year. The company rebrand was a strategic decision based on the company’s growth and expansion into new markets.
“As we continue to grow at Inland it was important for us to look into how we could expand our current footprint,” explained Garet Wetzel, Inland’s vice president of supply chain. “Having these facilities will give us the flexibility to add additional equipment and continue providing quality products and services for our customers.”
In addition to the new square footage, Inland is scheduled to install a new flexographic printing press in July and two new XL offset printing presses by October of 2015. Heavy investment back into the company is nothing new to Inland, which has internally invested over $30 million since 2008. Along with equipment, Inland has also placed and continues to recruit for over 50 positions to help with the expansion.
Inland plans to have the first of the new presses running at full capacity by mid-July. Anyone interested in current job openings with Inland should visit www.inlandcareers.com.
