NTDA allied member CIMC Intermodal Equipment hosted a ribbon cutting and open house earlier this month celebrating the opening of a new facility that significantly expands the company’s headquarters in South Gate, CA. The event was attended by more than fifty key customers, suppliers and board of director members. The expansion adds over fifty thousand square feet under roof and another fifty thousand plus square feet of additional parking space to accommodate CIMC’s growing North American intermodal business.
The building houses offices for purchasing, human relations, finance and accounting, logistics, sales support, and key executives. A modern, fully-outfitted IT department was added along with a technical center training room and new production support offices. In addition, CIMC IE has added a new educational training center, parts PDC, and chassis showroom with a central product gallery.
Frank Sonzala, CEO, noted that “CIMC is unique in having an indoor showroom that offers visitors a clean and uncluttered area in which to view new container chassis.” He added that “the expansion was necessary as our customer base and product demand continues to grow in North America.”
