Parkit360, manufacturer of innovative battery-powered dollies for boat, RV and general purpose trailers, has moved to a new location on Industria Avenue in Carleton Place, Ontario.
"We optimized the layout of our manufacturing space to be more efficient and accommodate planned new product launches," Parkit360 Sales and Marketing Director Stefan Houle says. “Sales have been record-strong and we simply outgrew our space."
The 11,000 square-foot facility upsize includes company offices and doubles its previous footprint. Earlier in 2017, it added staff to keep pace with corporate growth.
Parkit360 power dollies maneuver trailers around obstacles and tight corners that would be impossible to accomplish with a vehicle. Light and compact enough to fit into the trunk of a small sedan, models accommodate up to 15,000-pound payloads.
