October 31, 2022
HUSTISFORD, Wis.— Pivot Point Incorporated, a manufacturer of non-threaded fasteners, reported that it completed a 30,000-square-foot expansion to its manufacturing facilities in Hustisford. The expansion brings Pivot Point’s total manufacturing campus to nearly 100,000 square feet, the company said in a release.
“We’ve invested heavily in equipment, especially automation, so that we can have the best value proposition in quality, pricing, and lead times,” said Sol Leitzke, owner of Pivot Point Incorporated, in the release. “This has resulted in robust, steady growth—we’re practically bursting at the seams. This factory expansion will allow us to continue to add equipment and continue to grow without constraint.”
The general contractor for the project, Bayland Buildings, Inc., of Green Bay, erected a steel frame building that allows for a greater clear span of the interior space. This optimizes work and traffic flow for manufacturing, Pivot Point said in the release.
The expansion also included installation of a 150-foot tall flagpole that is believed to be one of the tallest in the state of Wisconsin. Pivot Point hosted a public dedication ceremony on October 26, raising the flag for the first time. Nearly 300 people attended, the company said.
Pivot Point’s products include clevis pins, cotter pins, quick release pins and devices, locking pins, and wire-rope lanyards. They also include unique and proprietary items, such as the SLIC Pin™, which the company described as “a pin and cotter all in one.”
