Advanced Polymer Technologies Relocates to Larger Facility -
Remains in Stockton
Stockton, CA – Advanced Polymer Technologies (APT) has announced the relocation of its manufacturing facility to a larger facility approximately twelve miles from its prior location at the Port of Stockton.
For APT, a manufacturer of plastic stock shapes, the new space means improved manufacturing capabilities, new amenities for employees and room for growth. APT will occupy a 59,850 SF facility in Stockton’s industrial area, located off of I-5 at Arch Road. Darren McFadden, of Lee & Associates Commercial Real Estate assisted APT in its new location decision.
“The new floor plan will provide greater efficiency in our manufacturing processes. We expect this to improve internal and external communication, and most importantly our ability to fulfill our customer’s requirements,” says John Sharpe, General Manager. “We were fortunate to find such a nice space so close to our prior facility. We really wanted to limit the impact that relocation could have on our customers and our employees. I don’t think we could have found a better location for our team. Our new location and enhanced operational efficiencies will help us continue to grow and evolve to keep pace with our customer’s needs, allowing us to provide exceptional value and superior service along the way.”
APT enlisted the expertise of the San Joaquin Partnership to assist with permitting and incentive analysis.
“It is gratifying to assist an established company grow in San Joaquin County,” says Partnership President & CEO Mike Ammann. “APT’s decision will mean 25 people keep their jobs and more will be hired. A major part of our community’s future growth will come from expanding existing companies that see the business value of a San Joaquin USA location that serves the NorCal Mega region with 14 million consumers.”
Advanced Polymer Technologies, LLC (APT) was founded in 2002 by Steve Kessler in Stockton, CA for the manufacture of engineering plastic stock shapes, and is an ISO 2001 certified company.
