Process equipment manufacturer Readco Kurimoto LLC, York, PA, recently celebrated the groundbreaking on its new facility. 

Designed to nearly double the size of its current facility to 67,000 sq ft, the new facility will house machining and assembly operations, a 60-seat training and education center, engineering and sales offices, warehousing, and two laboratories for testing products and materials in sanitary and/or hazardous environments. 

The relocation was necessary to meet current and projected demand for the company's line of process equipment, according to Doug Dodson, president of the company's North American operations.

A subsidiary of Kurimoto Group, Osaka, Japan, originally founded in 1906 as the Read Machinery Company, Inc., Readco custom-engineers process equipment used for automating production in the food, chemical, pharmaceutical, nutrition, and other industries. Its line of proprietary equipment includes the continuous processor that mixes multiple powdered, liquid, and viscous materials in one step, the Continuous Hybrid Reactor that offers heating, cooling, mixing, degassing, and other processes in one step, and the self-contained processor for continuous drying and evaporation in one step. A variety of companion and auxiliary equipment is also offered.

Operations in the new facility are set to begin during the first quarter of 2023.
