From Area Development Magazine:
“As previously announced,[ Ocean Bio-Chem ]2020 sales increased over 32% or $13.3 million to approximately $55.6 million from 2019 sales. Our 2017 plant expansion was essential to support the increase in business we realized in 2020. […] Without the plant expansion, we would not have had the capacity to meet customer demands. Our current expansion plans are essential in supporting our anticipated business growth in the future.” […]
“Also as a result of growth of our business we have directly supported the local Montgomery, Alabama economy during this time of lower employment. […] Not only did we increase our hiring during 2020, we now employ approximately 145 full time employees with benefits, an increase of approximately 50% from the beginning of 2020.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
