Golden Technologies has opened a new warehouse in Laflin, Pa.
The new facility doubles the capacity of the manufacturer's Pennsylvania Lift Chair Distribution Center, according to a news announcement.
"We are very proud of our new Distribution Center," said Golden Technologies CEO Richard Golden. "It's nearly double the size of our previous location in Old Forge and is a more efficient and cost-effective facility for us."
The new warehouse boasts 100,000 square feet devoted to storage and distribution, as well as energy-efficient lighting, railroad ramp access and truck loading docks.
The company's previous distribution center, which is next to Golden's corporate headquarters and manufacturing plant, will be outfitted with manufacturing lines to create 50,000 square feet of additional manufacturing space.
"This will allow us to maintain and improve our entire quality systems for lift chair manufacturing," CEO Golden said.
Golden Technologies is based in Old Forge, Pa. The manufacturer, which builds power lift and recline chairs, power wheelchairs and scooters, celebrates its 30th anniversary next year.
