Our week started out with some sad news when we decided to pull our people from the show. In order to protect our people and community from the COVID-19 outbreak, we thought it best to stay home. Despite this sad outcome, we did have our booth set up at the show and have kept up a steady online presence with our many exciting announcements of new products and services!
Lawrenceburg, TN – Craig Manufacturing is excited to announce that our first U.S. location in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee is officially open! Ground was broken for this facility on October 5th of last year, and just 9 months following that day our production facility is complete.
Some shop set-up details remain to be completed, but we will very soon see the first Craig product to be made in the U.S.A exit the paint booth. There is much still be done as we gradually ramp this facility up to be the production facility we envision it will be. The first group of hires have started and there is more to come. We hope to grow this facility into a production powerhouse for the U.S market.
Recently it was announced that our late founder, Woodford ‘Woody’ Craig, and his son and current company CEO, John Craig, are being inducted into the New Brunswick Business Hall of Fame. We are beyond excited for what these two men have achieved and the company that Craig Manufacturing has grown into (and continues to become) thanks to their efforts over the last 73 years of business.
Without the determination and drive of both Woody and John, Craig Manufacturing would not be where it is today with three locations across Canada and our first USA location set to open in June 2019. Their want to do what it takes and continually improve is a value that is held across the entire company at all locations.
