Randa Accessories expects to boost its output and efficiency as it expands its footprints in Reno, Nev.; New Orleans, and Toronto and closes the Swank distribution center in Taunton, Mass.
The firm, the largest U.S.-based men’s accessories supplier, has earmarked $25 million for, among other purposes, a second facility in Reno, a 275,000-square-foot edifice that will add 120 jobs to its head count and go online with LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, Silver certification, and an upgrade of its logistics facility in New Orleans that, with the addition of a new conveyor system and logistics software, will elevate its accessories capacity, with an emphasis on belt shipments, to more than 30 million units a year.
