Bekum America Corporation has completed construction of an expanded machine production facility to meet the consistently high demand for Bekum extrusion blow moulding machines. The new facility adds 40,000 square feet of manufacturing and 7,400 square feet of office space to Bekum’s existing 115,000 square foot facility. This expansion will allow Bekum America to increase machine output, shorten lead times and will result in continued expansion of the workforce.
Bekum America’s manufacturing team proudly shipped the 1st machine from the new machine assembly hall in May and will be very busy in the months ahead fulfilling current machine demand. In addition, Bekum America will host a Customer and Community Open House on September 29 – October 2nd, not only to formally dedicate the new building, but to also showcase Bekum’s new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
Steve London, President & COO of Bekum America commented that “We believe that the expansion of our facility and workforce will not only contribute to growing the local economy, but will also showcase Bekum America’s continued commitment as North America’s leading provider of mono-layer and multi-layer extrusion blow moulding technology. We are truly grateful for the hard work of our dedicated employees, the loyalty of our customers and the visionary leadership and commitment from our ownership.”
