Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to have our current and potential customers push us to develop new products and processes, and this work continues. We recently added over 15,000 square feet in our main facility in Atlanta, GA in order to grow our stamping and tool and die capabilities. With stamping, we added a 1000T press line, and as demand increases have plans for more high-tonnage lines. On the tool and die front, we added wire EDM, multiple CNC machining centers and other support equipment to improve responsiveness and reduce costs for both maintenance and new tool and fixture builds. As with all growth, these efforts direct relate to our ongoing ability to service our customers.
In 2013, we opened an operation in Fort Wayne, Indiana to warehouse and distribute product to local customers. Since that time, we’ve continued to add manufacturing capacity in an effort to develop redundancy for all key processes and to provide a local manufacturing solution for certain segments of our customer base. In 2016 we expanded our Fort Wayne facility to over 65,000 square feet and now have redundant capability for all stamping and fabrication processes.
