Ensign Equipment Inc., a supplier of material handling equipment and integrated systems for handling dry bulk solids, has completed a 10,000-sq-ft expansion of its assembly plant.

The project started in 2021, but was delayed by several supply chain disruptions. The expansion is part of an ongoing trend for the company as it has expanded its office space twice in the past three years to keep up with the consistent hiring of additional talent in its sales, engineering, and procurement departments.

The 10,000-sq-ft addition will nearly double the company’s assembly space, accommodating the continued growth Ensign has experienced due to higher demands for automated material handling solutions.

“There is a strong increase from our existing and new clients for solutions to be more automated and more intuitive as many have struggled to not only find employees, but also qualified personnel who able to operate machinery,” said Andrew Hartline, VP of sales & marketing. Our president, Mark Hoffman, has always had a progressive mindset. With his support we made significant infrastructure investments in people and technology a few years back. This has primed us for our recent growth. Our team’s hard work and dedication has allowed us to keep up with the increased demand we’ve been fortunate to experience.”

The completed expansion and increased production team enables Ensign to provide equipment with significantly faster lead times.
