Radians, a top-tier manufacturer of high performance personal protective equipment (PPE), finished construction of a new warehouse at their North Carolina facility increasing square footage by almost 50%.
The Radians® complex in Thomasville is currently responsible for manufacturing Radians Made in the USA high visibility apparel, custom vests and T-shirts, and most of the Radians public safety vests for first responders.
Their new warehouse is 14,200 square feet and has 35 feet tall eves to allow for high storage, expanding their pallet storage spaces from 90 pallets to 420 pallets.
In addition to completing their new warehouse, Radians is converting 10,000 square feet of their original warehouse to new manufacturing space. According to Philip Young, VP of Operations, “The new manufacturing space will allow Radians to streamline production and increase efficiency in several key areas including cutting, sewing, screen printing, heat sealing, and inspection.”
Other improvements include:
- New heat and air systems for heating and cooling 30,000 square feet
- Embroidery capabilities
- The addition of new sewing machines and a new large format heat press
“Employment opportunities are often a byproduct of expansion,” says Young. “We are happy that our employee headcount in North Carolina is up approximately 22% in the last 12 months. This is an exciting time for Radians and the Thomasville community.”
