Rochester Midland Corporation (RMC), a leading manufacturer of specialty health and safety products, celebrated the opening of their new facility in Riverside, California on June 13th.  Distinguished guests included the Riverside Mayor, Ronald O. Loveridge, Harlan Calkins, Chairman and CEO of RMC, and Glenn Paynter, President of Rochester Midland.


Rochester Midland identified Riverside as the location for their expansion project as early as January 2011 and worked closely with City Business Liaisons throughout the permitting process to ensure a smooth and efficient transition to the new facility.


RMC plans to use the new facility, located at 7275 Sycamore Canyon Blvd., to upgrade and expand their current production and warehouse/distribution capabilities on the west coast, replacing a smaller building currently in use in Ontario, California.  The new facility in Riverside brings higher technology and added value to RMC's western U.S. customer base in supporting their customers' position within the Sustainability movement-i.e. better training for their employees, improved cycle counts with a local provider of goods, and being a local source for green chemistry and water/energy reduction programs to assist them in their efforts to improve the environment.  (Read more...)
