Flexco Expands Grand Rapids-Based Clipper Facility

June 10, 2008
Flexco has expanded its Grand Rapid’s facility to accommodate new products and enhance customer service in response to Flexco’s global focus.

Flexco Grand Rapids, previously known as Clipper Belt Lacer, is a manufacturing facility for the Clipper wire hooks used for connecting light-duty conveyor belts in many industries and for the majority of Flexco’s belt conveyor products that include belt cleaners and other products for the heavy-duty conveyor markets. Clipper was acquired by Flexco in 1995 and although it is now called Flexco, it will maintain the Clipper product name.

The company’s 60,000-sq-ft expansion almost doubles the current manufacturing space of 72,000 sq ft and includes primarily manufacturing processes. A 5000-sq-ft training center, which will accommodate up to 100 people, has been added to enhance product training capabilities and a wellness/exercise center for employees and their families was also added.
