The equipment company Wastequip, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, has opened its newest manufacturing facility in Blacksburg, South Carolina. The facility is the second expansion for the company so far this year.

The company says the Blacksburg location was selected for its easy access to highway corridors, making it a prime location for customers throughout the Southeast.

The new facility will initially produce front-load and roll-off containers, as well as grease containers and specialty products. According to Wastequip, the facility offers space for on-site inventory to serve customers quickly. It also will have capacity to manufacture compactors and other Wastequip products. 

“Our investment in this area is evidence of our commitment to customers and to a region where we had lost focus,” says Marty Bryant, CEO of Wastequip. “As the supplier of choice for several large national haulers, our expansion strategy is key to continuing to provide the waste industry’s best products at the most competitive rates and delivery times. We look forward to making more exciting expansion announcements this summer.”
