Resin distributor Chase Plastic Services Inc. has completed a major expansion of its distribution center in South Bend, Ind.
Clarkston, Mich.-based Chase broke ground last year on the $4 million addition. The expansion increases warehouse capacity at the site by more than 60 percent, adding 80,000 square feet for additional storage of more than 9 million pounds of material.
With the addition, the center now covers 206,000 square feet. In a June 15 news release, officials said that the updated facility improves processing throughput and includes five additional loading docks. The expansion also adds a new blender, equipment upgrades and expanded repacking capacity to enhance value-added services such as custom blending, material repackaging, and bulk-out capability.
