In response to demand for the Sierra REB line of two-ram balers and conveyors, Bakersfield, California-based Sierra International Machinery has announced a 24,000-square-foot expansion to its manufacturing facility in Jesup, Georgia. This expansion will allow Sierra to increase production and meet the demand for the full Sierra product line, the company says.

This will be the third expansion Sierra has added to its Georgia facility since it opened in 2008.

“We are proud to announce the expansion of our facility in Jesup, Georgia,” John Sacco, president and owner of Sierra International Machinery, says. “The success of our two-ram balers and conveyors in the waste sector has grown exponentially—far more than we initially anticipated—which can be largely contributed to our new REB-4 two-ram baler that has surpassed all expectations. With this type of growth, the expansion was necessary to meet the demand for the Sierra catalog.”

While every machine in the Sierra product line passes through the Georgia facility, every Sierra two-ram baler and conveyor is fully engineered, manufactured and assembled in Georgia. Sierra offers three different two-ram models, including the patent pending REB-4 with dual-compression doors, and many conveyor models. Once completed, Sierra’s Georgia manufacturing facility will be 72,000 square feet and will provide additional job opportunities in the Jesup area.
