The company, a unit of Japan's Kuraray Group, will distribute its SentryGlass product out of the new 175,000 square-foot logistics center at the Elizabethtown Airport Industrial Park.


The company chose the location because of its proximity to Fayetteville Works, which it acquired less than a year ago, and to I-95 in addition to the building's size.


We do a lot of trucking of this material along the East Coast,” said Ross Crews, plant manager for Kuraray's Fayetteville site. "Demand for SentryGlass, a highly durable material used by architects and construction firms, is growing in eastern states like Florida that are now adopting stricter building codes."


The new logistics center will employ forklift operators, shipping specialists and fulfillment personnel.


According to a news release, the site began receiving shipments of SentryGlass in mid-March. The product can resist hurricane-force winds, bullets, bomb blasts and forced entry.
