Local, State and National Officials honour Glen Arm manufacturer

On 18th September, 2017, local, state and national officials gathered at SUN Automation Group's Glen Arm, Maryland campus to mark the purchase of 33 acres of land which includes its 183,000 sq ft manufacturing facility. The celebration brought together customers, employee-owners, customers, corrugated industry veterans and invited guests to celebrate US manufacturing in the Baltimore area.

"This new facility not only brings together our 118 US employees under one roof, but also allows us to have the space and tools needed to better serve our customers and grow our business," said Ron Diedeman, President of SUN Automation Group. "We also have ample opportunity to grow with the room and plan to build another 120,000 sq ft facility expansion building in the near future."Among the local officials in attendance, Secretary Mike Gill of the Maryland Department of Commerce praised the company for its leadership in the community, noting that SUN is a prime example of the growth of business in the state of Maryland. "We just came out with another job report last week and Maryland put 14,000 new jobs on the board," Gill noted.

"Now we have 131 US employees working together to support our customers around the world," concluded Diedeman. "We plan on expanding on that and we plan on growing and we look forward to offering more employment opportunities for more Marylanders."
