Employees, customers, and partners all gathered in Exton, Pennsylvania, on November 16 to celebrate the grand opening of its new 300,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. Located just across the street from its existing facility, company executives gave tours of the new location to more than a hundred guests before keynote speakers from various organizations.
And, the company is not finished yet. Joe Mirabile, president and CEO, USSC Group, said that the acquisition and renovation of the new facility took just 10 months and looks forward to new construction that will add 200,000 more square feet to the company’s footprint.
Guests were able to see vehicles using USSC Group’s products, in this case a fire apparatus using Valor Responder Seating.
Among the speakers were Mirabile; Ray Melleady, executive vice president, USSC Group; Rich Heaney, from the Pennsylvania Governor’s Action Team; David Cosgrove, the American Public Transportation Association Legislative Chair; Gary Smith, of Chester County Economic Development Council; Jeff Knueple, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority; Mike Hompesch, Dubin Clark; and Dan Peters, president, REV Group.
In his remarks, Hompesch said, “USSC Group is the most successful investment to date for Dubin Clark.”
Joe Mirabile, president and CEO of USSC Group addresses those gathered at the company’s new facility grand opening.
The fire service knows USSC for its Valor Responder Seating and more recently the introduction of its Fogmaker North America suppression product. This investment in its facility doesn’t only represent the company’s health in its various market segments, but also a commitment to the health of Chester County, Pennsylvania. With the opening of the new facility, the company expects to add more than 200 manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania.
USSC is still in the process of moving all manufacturing from its current location to ensure there is no interruption of production.
