SMC has announced a multi-million dollar expansion project with plans to add an additional 18,000 square foot addition to its current 55,000 sq ft. facility.
The increased capacity will provide an additional 16,000 square feet of manufacturing space along with 2,000 square feet of office space. "The additional space will allow us to consolidate customer manufacturing, expand our surface mount and box build capabilities and increase the size of our receiving docks", says Bob Oakley, manufacturing engineering manager, SMC. "The increased capacity also gives us the opportunity to maximize the efficiency of our material flow throughout our manufacturing process."
"This expansion project is another step in our continuing efforts to bring our manufacturing facility to its fullest potential level of productivity and efficiency for our customers," said Greg Howard, President of SMC. "This investment will provide improved facilities and equipment and open avenues for new programs, improved productivity; and shows the confidence that SMC has in the future of our company."
