Our two-phase move was completed in May, doubling our previous capacity.
We’re happy to report that our new 70,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and headquarters building in suburban Kansas City is up and running! Our move to our new facility was completed in May without too many “settling in” issues. And while moving our entire operation wasn’t easy, we’re very excited to have a brand new space – more than double the size of our old facility – that was designed from the ground up for maximum efficiency, as well as to accommodate future growth.
Some of the new equipment we installed in this new space includes a second tower loader for one of our high-production laser cutters – an Amada Fiber Optic Laser with the world’s fastest linear speed (four times faster than conventional CO2 models). Adding another tower loader for auto-loading means that this laser will now be able to run around the clock, substantially increasing our capacity. We also installed a new wash station, as well as a new state-of-the-art powder coating system, which will also allow for more throughput and give customers more finish options, all the while maintaining our industry-leading levels of quality!
We’re very excited to start this new chapter of our company’s history, and once more, we’d like to thank our customers for making all of our success possible. We’ve included a few photos here to give you a quick look at our new home, but if you’re ever in Kansas City, feel free to visit us at Three Trails Industrial Park on 87th Street between Interstates 49 and 435 for a personal tour!
