A-1 Global Holdings, Inc., an established company in pre-engineered building components, proudly announces the completion and grand opening of its latest expansion, a 48,000 square-foot addition to the A-1 Industries of Florida manufacturing facility in Fort Pierce. This significant development is a strategic response to the Company’s record growth and increasing customer demand.

President of A-1 Global Holdings, Jan S. Beck, expressed enthusiasm about the Company’s trajectory. “Our growth has been nothing short of phenomenal in recent years. This expansion allows us to significantly enhance our production capabilities for roof and floor trusses, proprietary EZWALL Innovative Framing SolutionTM, and meet the surging demand for engineered wood products. It’s pivotal in our commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction.”

The addition, built adjacent to the current 83,200-square-foot production facility, houses the company’s floor truss and EZWALL framing solutions departments and contains state-of-the-art manufacturing technology. It also includes a 1,600-square-foot office, a 1,250-square-foot break room for A-1 employees, and “A-1 University”, a nationally recognized hands-on Design training program.

As part of A-1’s strategic growth plans, this most recent addition follows the opening of A-1 Industries of Georgia’s 180,000-square-foot facility in Bainbridge, Georgia, in early 2022. “No other Company in this industry has the land resources of A-1. We can easily and quickly expand, without stopping operations, to accommodate future growth. This is a huge competitive advantage for us,” said A-1 Founder and CEO John Herring.
