East Hanover, N.J.-based Foremost Groups has celebrated the grand opening of its new manufacturing and distribution center in Hobart, Ind. The facility will serve as the distribution center and showroom for Foremost branded products that include its new product offering, Foremost Shower Enclosures. Company representatives report that the majority of this full line of shower and tub doors will also be produced at the new manufacturing facility.
The location includes a 50,000-square-foot warehouse, distribution and manufacturing facility and a 2,000-square-foot regional showroom.
According to a company news release, Hobart was chosen primarily because of its location along the major thruways via the east-west trucking corridor. The area is also rich with industry experience.
