Aluminum extrusion manufacturer Vitex Extrusion recently leased a 50,000-sq-ft building next to its existing production plant in Franklin, NH to expand its capacity, the company announced in a recent release. The new facility will focus on machining, fabricating, and assembling aluminum extrusions.
“Over the last few years we’ve made a number of strategic investments in new equipment and technologies to meet the downstream manufacturing needs of our customers. As a result, our existing building could no longer accommodate the ‘value-added’ business growth,” Andrew Curland, president and chief executive officer of Vitex, said in a statement. “We’re fortunate this nearby facility became available, allowing us to move our machining and fabrication business into a manufacturing space that will accommodate continued growth.”
Vitex’s new building will contain over 24 CNC machines, work cells, and deburring and punch systems. The company also intends to install cellular production units for large volume OEM production platforms with robotic equipment.
“The percentage of our extrusion output requiring machining, fabrication, and other value-added features is continually expanding,” Curland said. “The added space allows us to continue investing in new manufacturing equipment and technologies to support customers focused on product development, rather than internal production capabilities.”
The new facility is slated to become operational this month.
