New, Expanded Headquarters Punctuates Continued Momentum and Growth for America’s Fastest-Growing Lure Brand
LADSON, SC (September 24, 2012) — Continuing to ride the wave of media interest, tournament success, and the ensuing groundswell of consumer demand that its product lineup has created, Z-Man Fishing Products is proud to announce its move to a new state-of-the-art facility in Ladson, SC to better accommodate growth and allow for future expansion.
Located midway between the world-renowned Santee Cooper Lakes and the inshore fishing mecca that is Charleston, SC, Z-Man’s new 37,000-square-foot corporate headquarters now houses the company’s executive offices, warehouse, product showroom, manufacturing facility and R&D lab under one roof, consolidating six separate prior locations in the process. The move also provides Z-Man with expanded manufacturing capacity thanks to the addition of supplemental injection molding equipment and custom-designed pressurized air, chilled water and electrical systems. And, the new space—located within Palmetto Commerce Park, home to companies the likes of Daimler Vans Manufacturing, Cummins Turbo Technologies and Shimano American Corporation—occupies only half of the 75,00-square-foot, company-owned complex, ensuring ample room for future growth and expansion.
“We’re thrilled to bring all of our operations under one roof with this move into our new state-of-the-art facility,” states Jonathan Zucker, President of Z-Man Fishing Products. “We’ve expanded our manufacturing capacity to meet growing demand for our ElaZtech® plastics, and our upgraded warehouse is designed to service our customers of all sizes around the world—from individuals ordering online and independent dealers, to national retailers and international distributors.”
About Z-Man Fishing Products:
A bold, dynamic, Charleston, SC-based company, Z-Man Fishing Products has prided itself on bringing technology to anglers for over 25 years. Z-Man has long been one of the industry’s largest suppliers of silicone skirt material. But, even though the company’s Original ChatterBait® was creating stir on the major bass circuits, only a handful of pros associated Z-Man with this tournament-winning lure.
Today, however, all that is changing. Every day, Z-Man’s amazing 10X Tough ElaZtech® soft plastics are gaining momentum among the world’s premier fresh- and saltwater baits, helping make them the fastest-growing lure brand in America.
Z-Man’s proprietary ElaZtech® material is remarkably soft, pliable, and 10X tougher than traditional soft plastics. ElaZtech® resists nicks, cuts, and tears better than other soft baits and boasts one of the highest fish-per-bait ratings in the industry, resulting in anglers not having to waste time searching for a new bait when the fish are biting. This unique material is also naturally buoyant and floats up off the bottom, creating a more visible, lifelike, and attractive target to game fish. Unlike most other soft plastic baits, ElaZtech® contains no PVC, plastisol or phthalates, and is non-toxic.
