Auxiliary equipment maker Munson Machinery is expanding the size of its Utica, New York, headquarters by approximately one-third.
“The expansion will boost our fabrication and assembly capabilities to increase production and reduce lead times,” said Munson CEO Charles Divine. “It will also allow us to increase the size of our test lab.”
The additional space includes an expanded assembly area with 6.7 m high bays and two bridge crane systems to accommodate larger machines, a new shipping and receiving area with loading dock, and space for a new water jet, sheet metal rollers and additional welding centres.
The expansion of the Utica location, which also houses the administrative offices for worldwide sales and marketing, will be completed by the end of July 2014.
Founded in 1823, Munson manufactures a range of mixing and blending machinery and size reduction equipment.
