RIDG-U-RAK Completes $6 Million Plant Expansions

North East, PA – August 2007 – RIDG-U-RAK, a leading manufacturer of rack storage systems, announces the start-up of its second new powder coat paint line at their North East facility. Bringing on this new 1,200-foot state-of-art powder coat line, marks the completion of more than 5-million dollars invested in the company’s two Pennsylvania plants.    

“We have made significant investments in plant and equipment over the past few years. These moves are vital to keeping Ridg-U-Rak positioned as a leading manufacturer of storage rack systems, said John Pellegrino, President & CEO. “We’re also very proud of the fact that we have been able to finance these projects without any government aid or incentives. No State or Federal dollars were used.”
