EZ STAK has moved into its new facility in Watertown, NY, Jefferson County. EZ STAK manufactures vehicle interior storage systems for service utility work trucks, trailers, and vans. The company’s fleet vehicle upfitting products are used extensively by municipalities as well as large corporations in the utility, telecom, cable, oil and gas, and construction industries.
EZ STAK’s new Watertown facility is an upgrade from its former 14,660-square-foot space to 75,000 square feet on 12 acres of land. The new location will better serve the Kingston, Ontario-based company’s customer base with increased space for U.S. manufacturing operations, powder-coating, assembly of products, shipping and receiving, upfitting trailers, and a customer showroom/training center.
The expansion project was supported by the North Country Regional Economic Development Council and Jefferson County Economic Development.
“Our new facility in upstate New York is a major step in the continued growth of EZ STAK,” said Phillip Wade, Director of Operations, EZ STAK. “Our expansion will help EZ STAK bring more skilled manufacturing jobs to the USA and fulfill our commitment within Jefferson County.”
EZ STAK moved to Watertown from Schaumburg, IL in May 2018. The decision to expand to New York was a strategic move to deliver quality and value to its customers, improve logistics, and the added advantage of overseeing operations. Since the move, EZ STAK has hired 23 employees’ in Watertown and plans to hire 15 more employees within three years at the new facility.
“We are very excited to officially announce the expansion to our larger facility on Old Rome State Road,” says Mike Lawrenson, EZ STAK’s president and CEO. “Watertown is a great city and we have hired talented people that I am proud to have on our growing team.”
