Newport News, Va., June 16, 2021
Solo Incorporated, the worldwide leader in the production of backpack, handheld, and one-hand sprayers, will move to a new facility located at 201 Enterprise Drive, Newport News, VA on June 23, 2021. The 64,000 square foot building is in the Oakland Industrial Park in northern Newport News near Fort Eustis and will support Solo's plans to expand its production operations. The new facility will house two new blow molding machines, which will be producing a new series of one-hand and handheld sprayers. In addition, Solo will begin injection molding of sprayer components. This is all a part of the company’s business plan to decrease dependence on foreign suppliers and increase control over the quality of our sprayers, the quality for which the Solo name brand has long been known.
The new building sits on a 10-acre lot which will accommodate future expansion. Solo's Vice President, Marion Bauer, commented, "Solo has a great team of employees, and I believe this will be a wonderful opportunity for growth for the employees, as well as for the company."
Solo Incorporated has made and assembled most of its sprayers in Newport News for over 35 years. The move signifies a new era for Solo Incorporated.
