Plastic shapes supplier Professional Plastics has added a new location in Angola, N.Y.
In a news release, officials with Professional in Fullerton, Calif., said the Angola site is the firm's second in Western New York and will provide space needed to expand its distribution and manufacturing in separate, dedicated facilities.
Professional has served the greater Buffalo area for more than 20 years and its business "continues to flourish," officials added. The firm anticipates steady growth in many markets, prompting the significant expansion.
"We are strengthening our operations to meet the demands of our customers, particularly in the rapidly growing semiconductor industry where substantial increases are expected for years to come," North America President Mark Casey said.
The Angola site covers more than 42,000 square feet of warehouse space with a 30-foot clear height and six dock doors. The location will serve the Northeastern United States.
Angola is Professional's 24th location. Officials said it will operate in conjunction with the firm's 50,000-square-foot East Coast corporate office and manufacturing site in Orchard Park, N.Y.
Professional employs 90 in Orchard Park and, with the addition of Angola, projects to double that number in the next three years. In addition to warehousing and distribution, Professional is renovating the Angola building's office space and will relocate some commercial functions there in early 2023.
In addition to the U.S., Professional has locations in Singapore, Taiwan and the Philippines. The firm specializes in plastic sheet, rod, tube, film and fabricated parts.
