New Balance expands across New England
New England Council member, New Balance, opened manufacturing facilities in Skowhegan, Maine, and Londonderry, New Hampshire as part of its efforts to expand manufacturing capacity in the US. The company aims to enhance its US supply network through innovation, automation, and robotics.
With the $65 million Skowhegan expansion, New Balance will add a 120,000-square-foot single-story addition to the existing facility, doubling production capabilities and creating 200 new jobs. Additionally, the Londonderry facility would cover 102,418 square feet and includes office and manufacturing space, seven loading docks, and LED lighting. New Balance expects to hire 250 employees initially and up to 450 upon completion of the project.
“New Balance has always been strongly committed to the communities where our associates live and work,” said Raye Wentworth, Director of Domestic Manufacturing at New Balance. “We’re thrilled to be able to support this important opportunity to add quality, affordable education and childcare resources for local families.
The New England Council would like to congratulate New Balance on this expansion.
