Auburn, Washington – EZ-ACCESS, a division of Homecare Products, Inc., is pleased to announce the addition of a new manufacturing and distribution facility in Hopkinsville, KY, a relocated corporate headquarters in Auburn, WA, and the opening of an East Coast office in Madison, TN.
The centrally located manufacturing and distribution warehouses combined offer 200,000 square feet of space, which is actively being utilized to meet the increased demand that the company has been experiencing.
