HAZMAT packaging warehouse to expand

ALBANY, Ga. — A hazardous materials packaging and bottle manufacturer will expand an Albany warehouse, according to a press release issued Wednesday.

According to the release, C.L. Smith, a full-line container distributor and hazardous materials packaging manufacturer, is expanding two locations in North America to better serve its customers.

The Albany location is a new area for the company.

According to the release, the warehouse here will serve the company’s Southeastern region.

Ellen Mughal, C. L. Smith’s marking director, said the massive new facility will offer the company more flexibility when storing its goods.

“We are very excited about the Albany facility,” Mughal said. “It offers our customers up to 1 million square feet of FDA-approved storage for all of their UN packaging and hazardous materials packaging products.”

According to its website, C.L. Smith has been in business for 35 years.
