FRANKLIN, NH, August 26, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Vitex Extrusion, a leading New England-based aluminum extrusion manufacturer and division of Momentum Manufacturing Group, announced it will expand its aluminum extrusion manufacturing business with the longe-term lease of a 50,000-square-foot facility. The building, located at 109 Industrial Park Drive in Franklin, NH, is adjacent to Vitex's existing 115,000-square-foot manufacturing plant and will be dedicated to machining, fabrication and assembly of 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," said Andrew Curland, Vitex Extrusion President and CEO. "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."
The new facility will house more than two dozen of the company's CNC machines, dedicated work cells, deburring and punch systems. In addition, plans are underway to install robotic-based cellular production units for larger volume OEM production platforms.
"The percentage of our extrusion output requiring machining, fabrication, and other value-added features is continually expanding," said Curland. "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 company expects to have the new building fully operational by September 2020.
