Patrick Industries expands production to serve FL and GA customers

ELKHART, IN – Patrick Industries, a leading manufacturer of laminated panels and components will exhibit at the Closets Conference & Expo, co-located with Wood Pro Expo Florida at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

Patrick recently expanded the manufacturing capacity of Inland Plywood of Cocoa, Fla., which it acquired last year. More specifically, Patrick’s investments have focused on increasing Inland Plywood’s capabilities to laminate vinyl, paper, polypropylene and thermo-foils. These new products will complement Inland Plywood’s existing high-pressure laminate and component capabilities.

Patrick said the expansion of Inland Plywood’s products and services will benefit customers in the southeast U.S. This includes companies involved in closet and home organization, residential cabinets, commercial casework and the MH/RV/marine industries.

Patrick is a publicly traded corporation listed at PATK on the Nasdaq. The corporation operates 10 additional laminating plants around the country plus numerous component operations mostly located in Elkhart, Ind.

Patrick will display product samples at booth #123, June 9-10. Learn more at

The co-located expos will be preceded by a full-day, dual-track conference, one for closet professionals and the other for cabinetmakers and custom woodworkers.
