Suarez Corporation Industries Prepares New EdenPUREÂ® Plant for September 2011 Start
NORTH CANTON, Ohio, Aug. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- After previously announcing plans for a move to all-American manufacturing in the former Hoover vacuum cleaner plant in North Canton, Ohio, Suarez Corporation Industries (SCI) today announced the facility will be completely operational by Sept. 6, 2011.
SCI will consolidate operations from its existing two facilities located near the Akron-Canton Airport in Green and Plain Townships, moving 180 employees to the Hoover District. The company plans to hire an additional 80 employees once the plant is fully operational.
After three years work sourcing components, equipment and technology from primarily regionally based suppliers, EdenPUREÃ® Infrared Space Heaters will be manufactured and distributed across North America through this new North Canton, Ohio location.
"This facility represents years of working to bring EdenPURE manufacturing home," Ben Suarez, company founder and CEO, said. "And not only have we been able to bring it home to the USA with a completely American supply chain, but we are proud to manufacture and distribute EdenPURE heaters from North Canton, Ohio."
"This is a great day for the City of North Canton," Mayor David Held said. "This company and its people continue to help us build our community with their strong commitment to living and working here. We are excited for a fully operational plant, and look forward to many years of mutually beneficial relationships between the business and the community."
