     Title: The Stow Company Expands Manufacturing Operations,  Adds 40 Jobs at Holland, Michigan Facility

HOLLAND, MICH., October 24, 2013 -- The Stow Company today announced that it will consolidate all manufacturing into its newly expanded facility in Holland, Mich.  The decision is part of a growth strategy that includes maximizing manufacturing capacities and leveraging a centralized, national shipping point.  The Holland facility manufactures products for all of the Company’s brands, including EasyClosets®, ORG Home® and Easy Track®, and has substantial room for further expansion.


“The Stow Company is on a strong path of double digit growth for all of our brands, and expanding the capacity of our Holland manufacturing operation allows us to meet growing customer demand and maximize efficiencies while keeping pricing competitive and maintaining market leadership,” said Randy Tallman, executive vice president of operations for The Stow Company.  “Our 200,000-square-foot Holland facility is now readily able to absorb additional volume, and will positively impact our already industry-leading quality and turnaround times.”


Approximately 40 new full-time jobs are being created in Holland by the expansion.  The recruiting and hiring process is already underway, and the Company expects to have all new associates on board and in place on all shifts by the end of 2013. “We’re very pleased to be adding a significant number of new stable, well-paid production and logistics jobs in West Michigan,” Tallman stated.
