Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno recently visited Sea Box Inc. to help celebrate the company’s grand opening of its new 378,000 square-foot world headquarters in Cinnaminson in Burlington County.
“Sea Box’s grand opening is happening because of its unprecedented growth over the last few years,” said Lt. Governor Guadagno. “It’s a tribute to both the company’s ingenuity and its commitment to its customers and to New Jersey. I am delighted to help Sea Box inaugurate its new facility and I hope to see the company continue to grow and flourish here in Burlington County. Their decision to expand here is a testament to the quality of work that New Jersey’s innovative and highly trained workforce produces. We look forward to continue utilizing the State’s strengths to grow and build upon our successful and productive relationship with Sea Box.”
The Lt. Governor joined dozens of local and state officials in formally christening a new home for Sea Box. Sea Box Inc., which was created in 1983, specializes in the design, modification and manufacture of ISO containers for commercial and military applications. The ISO is the international standards organization that regulates mass shipments of cargo, and all ISO containers must conform to approved standards relating to strength, durability, and size. Sea Box expanded in the 1980’s by increasing its business with the U.S. military and by launching a domestic container storage/leasing business. In addition to its headquarters in Cinnaminson, the company operates a manufacturing and service business in East Riverton and a second production facility in Hillsborough.
Sea Box’s new facility boasts about 330,000 square feet of manufacturing space, 18,000 square feet of warehousing, and 30,000 square feet of office space. The property also offers a rail spur for additional logistical capability. The site covers 20 acres with an additional 20 acres available for future expansion.
Sea Box is committed to helping those in need and to good environmental practices. The company sent a shipping container full of supplies to help earthquake-ravaged Haiti in 2010. Its factory and office building run on 100 percent solar power. The company has 147 employees in New Jersey.
Lt. Governor Guadagno is visiting 100 businesses across New Jersey to reinforce the Christie Administration’s support for business growth and economic expansion. Friday’s visit was her 45th.
