ELKHART, Ind. /eNewsChannels/ — REMIS AMERICA, the maker of energy efficient doors and covers, has expanded its American production, creating jobs and standing out in a tough economy. Driven by increased demand for its energy saving solutions and several commitments from major North American grocery retailers that extend into 2012, Indiana production of REMIS doors will now include the RemiSafe T line.
REMIS has hired 25 employees year to date and that total includes engineers, production employees, installation technicians and support staff with plans to add 15 more new employees by the end of 2011.
Safe T doors were launched in late 2010 by REMIS GmbH in Cologne, Germany. At EuroShop in February 2011 which took place in Dusseldorf, Germany, the Safe T doors were on display and North American retailers that came to the REMIS booth demanded we bring those doors to the states, explains Matt Pletcher REMIS AMERICA managing director. “It was necessary to move our most popular product lines to our Elkhart facility to give our customers the best possible experience. Not only does it allow us to have more control and better timing to satisfy our grocery retailer requirements, but also it lets us invest in our local workforce. The Elkhart area was hit hard by the recession and we at REMIS AMERICA are proud of doing our part to bring it out of the recession.”
Since the company’s inception in 2008, REMIS has brought over 45 jobs to the Elkhart area. “We remain dedicated to the Elkhart county workforce,” says REMIS CEO Jim Schwartz. “Our company is a local family business and we understand all the resources Indiana has to offer. As our business expands, we will no doubt continue to look toward the local workforce and Indiana suppliers to support our growth.”
