The move is needed because the new facility has more capacity, according to a press release.
While some of the production work is expected to move to the new facility, the company plans to keep its quality assurance and testing facilities, and most of the front office staff in Racine.
Based in Durham, North Carolina, CalStar also plans to add capacity to the Mississippi plant to keep up with demand.
“We’re excited for the expansion of our newest Columbus facility as we continue to manufacture America’s only sustainable brick and masonry solution,” said CalStar chief executive officer Craig Ratchford.
