Gray Construction and Sanritsu Logistics America Partner on New Facility in North Carolina

Today, Sanritsu Logistics America, Inc., a subsidiary of Sanritsu Logistics headquartered in Japan, announced a new facility in Reidsville, North Carolina. The company selected Gray Construction to design and build the new 51,153 s.f. facility.

“We were looking for a location for our base in the U.S. where the dynamic infrastructure we need would be satisfied,” said Mitsuharu Tanaka, CEO of Sanritsu Logistics America. “Rockingham County in North Carolina provides the strategic infrastructure to meet our client needs and expectations.”

The new facility will house a warehouse for heavy machinery including laser machines and bending machines for sheet metals and will also provide manufacturing and assembly capabilities.
