South Plainfield, NJ — A.J. Jersey opened a 20,000 sq. ft. facility next to its headquarters in South Plainfield, NJ. The company had been operating a second facility more than a mile away from its headquarters but decided to move closer to reduce wait times and increase efficiencies. “We have a ground-level door so that our drivers can drive in between buildings,” says David Rizzo, president of A.J. Jersey. “We don’t have to wait for our truckers to drive more than a mile between facilities anymore, and people can come in and communicate, exchange papers and access materials. It has made us much more efficient.”
The facility houses the company’s new training facility, which will be more than double the size of its current training facility. “We added a nice, large training center where our mechanics can do their equipment training and our suppliers can hold regional meetings. It picked up a lot of our employees’ spirits,” says Rizzo.
