A.R.E. Inc., a leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and tonneau covers for pickup trucks, announces the opening of its Fernley, Nevada manufacturing plant.

“The Nevada facility compliments A.R.E.’s existing plants in Massillon and Mt. Eaton, Ohio,” said Ralph Gatti, president, A.R.E. Inc. “It will allow for faster and more efficient delivery west of the Rocky Mountains, as well as increase our production capacity nationwide.”

The 184,000 sq. ft. facility, built on more than 10 acres, will produce the company’s full line of fiberglass caps and tonneau lids. The new facility is capable of producing approximately 60 units per shift, and employs nearly 150.

A.R.E. decided to expand its manufacturing process to meet the needs of its west coast clients. The company chose Fernley, Nevada due to the city’s industrial growth and its prime location with easy access to the highway.

Chuck Monson has been appointed General Manager. He brings more than 15 years of management experience in warehousing, distribution and transportation. He is an accomplished coordinator and implementer of large-scale business start-up and expansion ventures. Prior to joining A.R.E., Monson served as special projects manager for Medline Industries, Inc., the largest privately owned manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies in the United States. He oversaw the design, construction and expansion of new and existing facilities nationwide, and coordinated all associated activities. During Monson’s tenure, Medline averaged more than 20 percent yearly growth and annual sales in excess of $1 billion.

Dwight Miller, who served as a shift manager at the Massillon facility, will take the role of Plant Manager. Todd Masters, who has more than eight years of experience at the Massillon plant, will become the Assistant Plant Manager and Quality Assurance Manager in Fernley.
