Today, we are thrilled to announce that this state-of-the-art facility is officially open for business,” said Scott Rajeski, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Latham. “As we continue to drive the material conversion from concrete to fiberglass, the Kingston plant will allow us to better scale our operations across North America by reducing our lead times and expanding our manufacturing capabilities in attractive markets.
