“We are very pleased to have our new Arlington, Texas plant open,” said Robert Hakman, owner and president of Diversified. “It allows us to provide a much higher level of service to both our Southwest clients as well as regional offices of the many national firms we work with. We now have a true nationwide footprint that will drive down costs and increase efficiencies for our dealer partners and their clients.”
“As our company has grown from its initial beginnings in 1985 to the multi-plant operation it is today, it has always been part of our long term corporate strategy to have a significant presence in Texas,” said James Kersten, Diversified’s chief executive officer. “We felt now was an excellent time to commit capital and human resources to continue our national expansion and market penetration. We have a terrific facility with extensive production and distribution capabilities in one of the strongest label markets in the country. Also, we were able to bring in an experienced team to operate the plant led by industry veteran Skip Winans, our new general manager in Texas.”
