Chase Plastics Services, Inc., marked the completion of its $7.3 million investment in its headquarters facility build-out in Clarkston, Michigan, and the opening of its new 126,000-sq.-ft. central distribution center in South Bend, Indiana.

The expanded Clarkston headquarters doubles the companyís footprint to accommodate projected future growth.

Besides its executive offices, the headquarters facility houses customer service, sales administration, purchasing, product management/supplier development, logistics, accounting, credit, business process and human resources. A contemporary, open and collaborative first-floor workspace is the cornerstone of the $1.3 million build-out. It is designed to bring the interactive teams of customer service, purchasing, product management and technical support closer together. The new central distribution center leverages a network of 35 public warehouses to deliver materials where and when needed throughout North and Central America. It is centrally located in South Bendís main freight hub, allowing for the latest shipping cut-off times available. It also has expanded bulk material management capacity, the number of loading docks, an integrated modern racking system and broader packaging and storage capabilities.
