Imperial And Parkway Consolidate Operations

Imperial, leading manufacturer of survival suits and equipment, has moved its manufacturing and administrative offices from Bremerton, Wash., to the South Amboy, N.J., headquarters of its parent company, Parkway Fabricators, Inc.

Parkway, a Great American Industries Company, purchased Imperial 16 months ago.

"Consolidation of our manufacturing operations will increase cost efficiencies and strengthen our product development capabilities as we combine the best technologies of both companies," said Frank Sanger, president of Parkway/Imperial.

"David Stancil, who has done a tremendous management job for Imperial over the past year, will continue to serve our sales efforts as Imperial's West Coast sales manager," Mr. Sanger said.

Celebrating its 13th anniversary this year, Imperial is the largest producer of survival suits in the United States, and has worked with various governing bodies, including the U.S.

Coast Guard and Underwriters Laboratories, in testing and developing safe standards for 15 years. Imperial is the only U.S. manufacturer of these suits to pass Norwegian Maritime Directorate standards, known to be the most stringent in the world.
