Canada-based Blue Giant Equipment Corp. announced plans to open a U.S. operation, Blue Giant Equipment LLC, along with a new manufacturing facility in Millerd RefrigGreensboro, N.C.

“We are excited to expand our presence into the United States to better serve our customers,” says Jeff Miller, president. “The Greensboro location affords us the opportunity to manufacture in the U.S. while taking advantage of the abundant resources that North Carolina has to offer. Demand for Blue Giant dock products is growing globally. Opening in Greensboro, which is within 650 miles of half the U.S. population and close to major logistics hubs, will let us effectively respond to increasing order volume and strengthen our overall position.”

Situated on Burnt Poplar Road in an industrial park in Greensboro, this new facility will provide Blue Giant with additional manufacturing space and favorable freight and lead times to customers in that market. Immediate focus of the new company will be its growing line of innovative dock seals and shelters, including fixed and inflatable seals, stationary and retractable truck shelters, full access seals and rain shrouds.
