Continued Expansion & Growth
(Rutland, VT) – Kalow Technologies, a leading contract manufacturer of packaging, beverage dispensing, ag tech, and 3D printing equipment recently leased and began renovation work on an additional 30,000sf at 155 Seward Road in Rutland. Additional space was acquired to meet their expanding manufacturing needs and to develop new Engineering offices and a dedicated lab space for early-stage projects.
Jon Blatchford, President of Kalow, said “we are thrilled to be expanding our presence in Rutland and believe the new space will allow us to better support our existing and new customers”. Kalow leased and moved into 85,000sf in the same facility two years ago, but with the addition of a significant number of new product lines, securing additional space became imperative.
The company’s business has expanded significantly and become more diverse over the past few years. Besides investment in the building, the company has acquired new pieces of fabrication equipment, has updated their powder coating capabilities, and has invested in technology to better support the production of key product lines. Blatchford went on to say, “It is an exciting time for our business and employees. We recently helped a major customer of ours successfully move production of a key line of products from Mexico back to our facility and have launched several new and innovative products.”
Renovation of the new manufacturing space was recently completed, and the Engineering area should be completed early in 2024. Kalow currently employs 90 full-time associates and expects to hire more people in early 2024.
