Radians, a top-tier manufacturer of high performance personal protective equipment (PPE), finished construction of a new warehouse at their North Carolina facility, increasing square footage by almost 50%.
The Radians® complex in Thomasville is currently responsible for manufacturing Radians made in the USA high visibility apparel, custom vests, T-shirts, and most of the Radians public safety vests for first responders.
Their new warehouse is 14,200 sq ft and has 35 ft tall eves to allow for high storage, expanding their pallet storage spaces from 90 pallets to 420 pallets.
Radians is also converting 10,000 sq ft of their original warehouse to new manufacturing space. Philip Young, VP of Operations says, “The new manufacturing space will allow Radians to streamline production and increase efficiency in several key areas including cutting, sewing, screen printing, heat sealing and inspection.”
Other improvements include:
- New heat and air systems for heating and cooling 30,000 sq ft
- Embroidery capabilities
- The addition of new sewing machines and a new large format heat press
“Employment opportunities are often a byproduct of expansion,” says Young. “We are happy that our employee headcount in North Carolina is up approximately 22% in the last 12 months. This is an exciting time for Radians and the Thomasville community.”
