Seepex, Inc. recently completed a major expansion at their American headquarters in Enon, Ohio. The addition marked a 30% increase in total facility space, resulting in 26,000 sq ft to accommodate consistent growth since their last building expansion in 1999. This addition, completed in April 2005, allows for a 42.6% increase in factory space and a 20% increase in office space.
A spacious conference/training room, capable of seating 60, and offices to accommodate eight additional administrative personnel were added.
The new factory space supports a streamlined workflow in the areas of pump assembly, stator production, materials handling, and shipping. Additions within the new space include an enclosed and heated paint booth, a stator adhesive application booth, a tube rinse station, an elastomer storage room, and a 73% area increase in the air-conditioned stator measuring room. Acquisitions for the new space include a new mill and lathe, a 30,000 psi rubber injection machine, two lift trucks, overhead traveling cranes, new pallet shelving and cantilever racks.
