R&B Wire Products, the manufacturer of wire laundry carts and linen, laundry and general transportation products announced on 19 May that the company will be expanding its US manufacturing and distribution centres to meet what it describes as “ever-increasing demand.”

CEO Rick Rawlins said the company would be doubling their square footage at their headquarters in Santa Ana, California. “This investment has been in the works for several months and will allow us an even greater level of production capacity, while increasing our efficiency to deliver products more rapidly to our customers worldwide.”

R&B’s new facility will include state-of-the-art technology and automation to ultimately double its manufacturing capabilities. “The success of many new products has made the need for this expansion more and more evident,” explained Frank Rowe, VP of sales and marketing. “Our poly bumper trucks, vinyl bumper trucks and antimicrobial laundry carts have been well received within the industries we serve.”
