Chapin International Wins 2023 Manufacturing Award
for Operational Excellence
- Buffalo Business First
Batavia, NY, April 24, 2023 – Chapin International wins the 2023 Buffalo Business First manufacturing award in Operational Excellence. 2023 marks Chapin’s 139th year in business and 139 years of manufacturing excellence. It represents continued success and growth. Chapin has been a privately held company since its inception. It’s built solid ties in the community, strong vendor relationships and a valued local workforce.
Chapin International understands that “made locally, sold globally” resonates with those living in the communities where Chapin operates. It’s the pride of those living and working in Western New York, Ohio, Kentucky and Michigan. Chapin keeps its workforce and a large part of the supply chain in the United States. Staying focused on the commitment to product performance, quality, service, and delivery is what drives the company daily. Over 90 percent of Chapin’s manufactured goods are made in and ships out of Western New York. They have since 1884.
Chapin International continues to raise the bar in innovation for its competition as it continues to release new products annually. Chapin remains the industry standard for the commercial and industrial marketplace and continues to dominate in retail and hardware channels. Its recent expansion into Kentucky accounts for a total footprint of over 1.5 million square feet of manufacturing space. And, it’s still headquartered in Batavia, NY. It’s this innovation that draws the exceptional talent in Chapin’s workforce.
Chapin is known for its quality and brand recognition. Each year the company expands its product offering (sprayers, spreaders, and irrigation) and each year it pushes past boundaries in innovation (high capacity, M.O.E., battery-powered, environmentally conscious), providing an appropriate growth model to position Chapin as the application product experts.
Chapin is a firmly rooted, vital and thriving business in Western NY, but it’s also a silent contributor to all the communities in which it calls home. Chapin was deemed essential throughout the pandemic and continued full force, providing sprayers to aid with disinfection and other cleaning needs. Donations of sprayers (by pallet load) was given to local emergency services to disinfect vehicles and equipment. With annual contributions, company-held fundraisers to local charities, and providing sprayers to Samaritan’s Purse for earthquake relief in Turkey, Chapin’s senior management and its dedicated employees take great pride in the company’s ability to continually “pay it forward”.
