Bay State Cable Ties LLC has a new name, American Elite Molding LLC, that the company believes better reflects its identity and will serve it better as grows in the future.
“We've seen a real resurgence for ‘Made in America,'” said Bay State Ties founder and CEO Bob Sires.
He said the Crestview, Fla-based company has grown its sales to $25 million and that it wants to double in size over the next five years. Sires said that some may assume it is a regional player, but that it has grown into a national distributor, serving clients all over the U.S. as well as Mexico and Canada.
The maker of nylon cable ties expanded its manufacturing plant last year by 20,000 square feet and also has established several new distribution centers regionally to allow for just-in-time shipping. It has distribution centers in Crestview, Carmel, Ind.; Terryville, Conn.; and Los Angeles.
Sires said that the name was carefully chosen. The word “American” shows its commitment to keeping its manufacturing in America and its national coverage with four distribution centers. “Elite” refers to its position as a leading U.S. manufacturer and dedication to product quality and customer service.
Lastly, “Molding” describes its product scope that range from cable ties to HVAC duct straps and custom plastic injection molding.
American Elite operates out of a 75,000-square-foot facility, running 24 hours, seven days a week. It makes cable ties in a variety of lengths, tensile strengths and colors, as well as mounting pads and cable clamps.
