CELINA, an Ohio-based company, is pleased to announce the expansion of its manufacturing facility, including its subsidiaries Celina Tent, Inc. and Celina Enterprises, LLC. This newly added 105,000 square foot expansion addresses the increasing demand from the Department of Defense for USA-made, Berry Amendment Compliant industrial textile fabric products like humanitarian tents, military shelters, and bladders. The addition will increase the campus to 300,000 sq. ft., enabling CELINA to enhance metal fabrication and assembly capabilities to build engineered frames and structures to meet global environmental requirements for mission critical shelter solutions.

This modern manufacturing facility allows CELINA to consolidate processes and provide improved efficiencies. Vertical integration enables CELINA to offer total solutions for its customers' manufacturing needs, including customization for unique military specifications utilizing core products like Large Area Maintenance Shelters (LAMS), Dome Structures, tarpaulins, and turnkey base camp solutions with Dynamic Medium or Small shelters.

Jeff Grieshop, CEO/President of CELINA, commented, "Since 1996, CELINA has been manufacturing products primarily as a private-label subcontractor. This expansion empowers us to fulfill end-users' needs while upholding our commitment to our valued partners and our obligations to the Department of Defense."

Jill Roy, President of Celina Enterprises, LLC, explained, "The establishment of Celina Enterprises in late 2021 signified a strategic pivot for the company, marked by a restructuring. We sought to diversify our services and offerings beyond the Department of Defense opportunities. Our division targets encompass transportation, industrial storage, and agriculture markets, broadening our focus from rental, event, and hospitality markets."

As stated by Jon Webb, Business Development Director of Celina Tent, Inc., "CELINA is strategically positioning itself to become the provider of choice for rapid deployment and to sustain operational capabilities with turnkey base camp and maintenance facility solutions for the Warfighter.”

Nauseef. “The consolidation of CELINA’s Mercer County operations brings 43 new jobs to a complex that will manufacture highly customized structures in high demand worldwide.”

“We are excited for CELINA to expand its manufacturing capabilities in the Dayton Region,” said Dayton Development Coalition Exectuvie Vice President of Regional Development Julie Sullivan. “Having a world leader in manufacturing engineered fabric products is a major win for the region.” CELINA and its subsidiaries have recently completed an expansion of their manufacturing facility in Celina, Ohio to enhance their future capabilities and meet the requirements of end-users.
