The new corporate headquarters is approximately 42 miles from its previous location in Litchfield. For Fuelab, a manufacturer of per- formance fuel system products, the new location means increased parts production, improved customer sup- port and room for growth, according to a press release. It will now occupy a 5,000-square-foot sales and manufactur- ing facility. "The new building will provide greater efficiency in how we serve customers. As we grew in our previ- ous location, we simply were running out of room. Our production area was becoming tight, while components were literally stacked to the ceiling. We now have a larger area for manufacturing, inventory, sales and customer service. This will provide for our current space requirements, and meet future needs as we continue to expand our diesel and gasoline fuel system sales operations," said Brian Paitz, Fuelab's president and CEO. The new location within the St. Louis, Missouri, metro area also puts the company closer to freight shipment hubs, thereby allowing for shipments later in the day, Paitz added.
