This week, US Cargo Control announced plans for a multimillion dollar expansion including further investment in its manufacturing division.
Company Founder and CEO Tim Guenther unveiled his preliminary plans when Iowa Economic Development Authority Director Debi Durham came to tour the Iowa based company on Wednesday, June 17. Durham visited Benton County as part of a local economic event hosted by the Benton Development Group. Her visit was just one stop as she sought to better understand the needs of businesses in rural Iowa.
US Cargo Control brings in more than 90 percent of revenue for its parent company Clickstop, which owns and operates several brands that serve diverse markets ranging from the moving and cargo control industries (uscargocontrol.com), to energy efficient insulation (ecofoil.com), fasteners (fastenersplus.com) and home storage solutions (spacesavers.com & justplasticboxes.com).
Two years ago the company began manufacturing tie-down products for its flagship brand US Cargo Control. Since then, the brand’s customer base, product lines and manufacturing sector have boomed.
Officials expect to break ground in September 2015 with an estimated completion date of August 2016.
