BOYNE CITY, Mich.—Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (IMI), reported a 36,000-square foot addition to its facility that will expand its manufacturing space to more than 70,000 square feet. According to a company release, the expansion project supports steady business growth from existing and new products, the growth of key channel partners, and Industrial Magnetics’ recent acquisition of Walker Magnetics.
“The new space will house a variety of work cells designed for efficient changeover to meet the wide array of products we manufacture,” said IMI Director of Operations Casey House, in the release. “Additionally, it will house 70 tons in crane capacity for large-scale projects, several additional pieces of capital equipment, and integrated loading bays to expedite our shipment processes.”
Craig Scachitti, IMI’s general manager, said in the release that IMI has “taken great care to design a construction plan that ensures as little workflow interruption as possible.”
“We are confident that we’ll maintain our current pace of business through the project and be well-positioned for continued growth. Much of this additional space is earmarked for manufacturing Walker brand products. We are looking forward to continuing to improve on our best-in-class customer service when the project is complete,” Scachitti said in the release.
