BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 14, 2023--
TriMas (NASDAQ: TRS) today announced that its TriMas Packaging group has successfully completed, ahead of schedule, the previously announced relocation of certain production assets from a California manufacturing facility to other facilities in Indiana and Arkansas. As a result, TriMas Packaging will be exiting a 160,000 sq. ft. leased facility in Rohnert Park, California, by the end of 2023.
Additionally, TriMas Packaging has now completed the insourcing of a substantial portion of activities at third-party warehouse and distribution centers in New Jersey and Nevada to capture logistics savings.
“While decisions to rationalize our manufacturing and distribution footprint are never easy, we chose to take advantage of this dynamic demand environment and achieve a more balanced manufacturing approach, positioning our TriMas Packaging group for enhanced future performance,” said Thomas Amato, TriMas President and Chief Executive Officer. “We anticipate the combined savings from these actions will be approximately $5 million on an annualized run rate basis. We expect to experience the full benefit of these actions in 2024, as we also anticipate taking advantage of operating leverage gains in a strengthening demand environment.”
TriMas manufactures a diverse set of products primarily for the consumer products, aerospace and industrial markets through its TriMas Packaging, TriMas Aerospace and Specialty Products groups. Our approximately 3,500 dedicated employees in 13 countries provide customers with a wide range of innovative and quality product solutions through our market-leading businesses.
