Correct Building Products LLC of Biddeford, Maine, now is operating out of a 125,000-square-foot facility, having moved from its original location in Biddeford where it started business in 1999.
``We got about five times bigger,'' President Marty Grohman said in an April 29 telephone interview. ``We were looking for lots of room for continued growth.''
The company extrudes CorrectDeck composite decking, railing and accessories from a mix of polypropylene and wood fiber. The firm is adding Cincinnati Milacron extruders, though Grohman wouldn't disclose the amount of equipment. The company moved in February.
The new site, which Correct owns, is better logistically in terms of rail service and trucking. Grohman and business partner Mike Hurkes had leased the original site.
In addition, the new space allows for a training center where contractors can learn to build decks using CorrectDeck. The firm also is growing in other markets, including supplying pellets to the injection molding industry, and it will continue its push into custom profiles for the window and door market.
Grohman and Hurkes started the business with a focus on controlled growth and new product innovation, serving specialty lumber stores. The firm steadily has added workers and now employs 60. It also is looking for a vice president of sales.
