Bluffton-based Edge Manufacturing plans to expand and move their operations to 800 Daugherty St. in Bluffton following the recent purchase of the former Fremont Canning facility.

The companyh plans to invest more than $3.5 million for the purchase, real estate improvements and equipment in the 101,000 square foot facility on Bluffton’s west side. The purchase expands the company’s operations from the current 80,000 square foot facility on Adams Street.

Edge Manufacturing is moving from its current facility on Adams Street to help facilitate the attraction of a new business to Wells County. Additional details will be released at a later date.

Edge was founded in 1991 in a 5,000-square-foot barn in Adams County. Due to the growth of the company, it located to Bluffton in 2004.

The company will use more than 200,000 square feet within Wells County with the expansion. The company facilitates plastic container modifications for the logistics and warehousing industry.

“Edge Manufacturing modifies containers to work in production applications for the automotive industry and even modifies container lengths for full optimization for logistical purposes,” says Eric Gerber, the company’s president and CEO. “The expansion is necessary to accommodate opportunities for additional growth in the company.”
