Ring Container Technologies (ringcontainer.com) opens a new plant in Hagerstown, Md. As well, Holly Combs has been hired as plant manager.

This facility, which the company is retrofitting to fit their needs, will be Ring’s 18th manufacturing plant. The Hagerstown plant anticipates production to begin in the first quarter. The space will operate as a manufacturing and warehousing facility.

“By locating our facilities closer to our customers, we are able to better meet their needs and support them in future developments,” said Jeff Ullrich, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Ring. “We believe that opening a new plant in this area is a great opportunity not only for our company, but also for our customers and the Hagerstown community as a whole. That’s one of the many reasons we got involved in the More Jobs for Marylanders Act.”

The expansion part of the company’s overall plan for continued, strategic growth nationwide. Ring is scheduled to open another facility in Louisville later this year.
