SAF-West to expand aluminum extrusions and sheet facility in Redding, Calif.
Officials from Southern Aluminum Finishing Co., Inc. announced that Huber Street Properties, LLC, a closely related entity to SAF, has purchased the facility in which SAF-West currently operates. SAF-West serves the western United States, Canada, and Pacific Rim markets with architectural aluminum distribution, fabrication and finishing services. The 13-acre property includes approximately 230,000 square feet of manufacturing and office space. The purchase helps cement SAF plans for expanded capabilities and services, including a new anodizing facility scheduled for next year, according to a Sept. 27 release.
"We are excited to grow SAF facilities in California. We are here to stay in Redding, our base for growing our markets for architectural aluminum in the western U.S. and Asia," said James McClatchey, vice president, SAF, in the release.
HSP is also developing plans to upgrade the building to attract new tenants for the facilities not operated by SAF. "The building offers an opportunity for a true mixed-use facility including manufacturing as well as offices. We see lots of possibilities," McClatchey said in the release.
