Greenway Products & Services announced the opening of its new pallet manufacturing plant in Maryland, with plans to hire up to 50 employees at the new facility. Located on Hollins Ferry Road in Baltimore, the new facility supports the rapid growth in online shopping, and the emerging network of warehouses supporting business and home deliveries in the Mid-Atlantic region. In addition, Baltimore is strategically located within an overnight drive of one-third of the U.S. population, making it an excellent location for companies with customers in the region.
Greenway’s new Baltimore manufacturing facility is equipped with efficient, streamlined, state-of-the-art automation for pallet manufacturing and remanufacturing. The facility will produce over 20,000 pallets per week, supporting retailers and manufacturing logistics throughout MD, DE, NJ, Eastern PA, and NY. In addition, the company is planning a job fair on January 27, 2021. Inquiries for employment can be directed to Edward Escamilla, VP of Human Resources at 732-442-0200.
Greenway Products & Services president Dominick Davi said, “The investments we have made in automation and the strong work ethic of our employees has enabled us to achieve the industry’s highest on time delivery rate of 98.9%.”
“Greenway Products & Services prides itself on customer service. We always go the extra mile to make sure our business operates at top-notch efficiency to ensure your products get where they’re going in a timely manner. Our new site and equipment are investments we made to ensure we keep our customers’ business moving,” reports Dave D’Amiano, Greenway’s VP of Sales.
The company is eligible for a number of state tax credits, including More Jobs for Marylanders and the Job Creation Tax Credit.
“We are excited to welcome Greenway Products and Services to Maryland and look forward to working with them to ensure their success,” said Maryland Commerce Secretary Kelly M. Schulz. “Maryland is an ideal location for any company that needs to quickly reach its customers in the Mid-Atlantic area.”
“We are excited that Greenway Products & Services selected Baltimore as the location for this expansion, where they will create job opportunities for city residents,” said Colin Tarbert, president and CEO of the Baltimore Development Corporation. “BDC will continue to provide the company with technical assistance and connect them to other city resources, such as the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, who will assist with their hiring efforts. Greenway’s selection of Baltimore reinforces the city as a great place to do business because of its strategic location, low cost of living, talented workforce and quality of life.”
In the pallet business, increasing pallet delivery service and quality control are key. Pallet automation equipment employs the newest automation, and computerization adds to the simplicity of the operation, while increasing productivity.
“The new Baltimore facility includes two lines – a direct line for pallet repair and assembly, and a recovery line to preserve sturdy and reliable components from recycled pallets.
The site is equipped with trailers and tractors for pallet pickups and deliveries to our customers,” says co-owner Anthony Fabrizio.
Greenway’s VP Paul Davi has pioneered the pallet business since 1993, and reflects on his deep experience in logistics: “Any business that needs to deliver or move product between manufacturing, warehouses, and retail operations relies on pallets to quickly and efficiently move products between warehouses, trucks, shipping containers, and ultimately retail stores.” He adds, “Products must be kept stabilized while being transferred and protected as they are lifted by forklifts, pallet jacks, or front loaders.” Pallets contribute to lowering handling and storage costs for all types of industries, including food and beverage production, landscape pavers, cabinetry and many more.
