INDUSTRY, Calif., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lollicup USA, a growing manufacturer and distributor of disposable paper & plastic foodservice products and retailer & supplier of specialty beverages, will move its headquarters from Industry, CA to Chino, CA in mid-September. The company will relocate to the new 300,300 square-foot First Chino Logistics Center at 6185 Kimball Avenue, which will serve as Lollicup USA's headquarters and house its offices & production, distribution, and service centers.
While many U.S. companies outsource manufacturing, Lollicup USA plans to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. "More and more consumers are looking for American made products. Not only is there a sense of patriotism, but they feel safer," stated Alan Yu, co-founder and CEO of Lollicup USA. "Factories in China are reducing labor intensive work by purchasing more expensive automated equipment – we might as well invest in the high-tech equipment and manufacture our products here in the U.S. ourselves. The cost of shipping has risen over the years, so it would also save us time and money to ship domestically to our customers, rather than from overseas."
Featuring 46 loading docks, two drive-in bays, 32-foot clear heights, an ESFR system, metal halide lighting, 800-amp heavy power, and industrial trailer parking, the industrial building is situated on 16.3 acres of Southern California's Inland Empire. The supply-constrained area intersects four major counties in the greater Los Angeles area, providing Lollicup USA direct access to its stores and customers.
Production and warehouse areas will take up over 90% of the new headquarters, increasing inventory and allowing the company to improve upon current order lead times. With a new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in-house, Lollicup USA will soon begin to manufacture its Karat® line, a line of disposable paper & plastic foodservice products, domestically. The office-production-distribution facility will also house a training kitchen for customers, as well as a game room and dining area with a full-service kitchen and chef for staff members.
