As it celebrated its 50th anniversary in March, Rema Tip Top/North America Inc. also marked the grand opening of its warehouse for both industrial and tire repair products.
The Northvale-based tire repair material manufacturer opened a 66,000-sq.-ft. facility in Covington, Ga., as its main warehouse for those two divisions, said President Olafur Gunnarsson. The facility also includes an industrial shop.
The company first had leased the space since mid-2001, but Rema bought the facility in September 2002, and it was online in March, Mr. Gunnarsson said. Rema now has three warehouses in the U.S.
Rema had operated a smaller facility in Georgia in the past, but the company had outgrown the space.
"We decided to get it all into a bigger one," Mr. Gunnarsson said.
Though he would not disclose specifics, Mr. Gunnarsson said Rema is looking at further expansions this year. Possibilities include new facilities in the east and in the west, he said.
Other details in the works include an upcoming marketing campaign focusing on Rema's 50th anniversary. Rema also is in the process of printing four new catalogs with reference to the anniversary.
