BATAVIA, IL – Suncast Corp., a maker of home and garden organization products, has bought a 47+ acre parcel near the intersection of Fabyan Pkwy. and Paramount Pkwy. in far west suburban Batavia, IL, and plans to build a 715,000-sf manufacturing and distribution facility. Located less than a mile from the company’s current headquarters, the expansion will bring the firm’s total square footage to over 1.3 million sf. Suncast’s manufactured items total more than 1000, under its lawn and garden, garage storage, snow tools and Just Stuff Licensed Products divisions.

“We considered building a facility in other parts of Illinois or other regions of the country, but we came back to Batavia, because the City has been good to us and we want to continue to work with them,” says Thomas Tisbo, president of Suncast.
