For Immediate Release
PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (October 24, 2018) - November 2nd will be a momentous day at Hodges as it will mark the completion of our move of all manufacturing operations to Washington, MO and the end of an era as we complete 98 years of manufacturing in New England. We broke ground on our 89,000 square foot state of the art facility in Washington four years ago and it has been a whirlwind getting to this point, but with the help of all our employees in Rhode Island and Missouri, I am proud to say, "We did it!"
The transition from 2 plants to 1 has been carefully orchestrated and executed. We have continued to achieve 100% on time delivery, and extremely high levels of customer satisfaction. Missouri has been filling all of our custom orders for the past 30 days without a hitch, and this will only get easier as our newest team members complete cross training on all our products.
Our Washington plant first opened in 1989 with a major expansion in 2015 and today employs more than 100 production, support and customer service staff. Locating in Missouri assures us of fast ground delivery to every part of the country.
Thank you for your continued patronage and support. It is because of customers like you that we are looking forward to celebrating our 100th anniversary as the country's leading manufacturer of quality, USA-made custom awards just 18 short months from now!
