“The significant sales growth Spee-Dee has experienced within the last
several years necessitated the inclusion of the additional production
space, as well as new investment in manufacturing equipment and an
increase in the company's workforce,” he stated.
According to Business Development executive David Navin, the company
continues to witness accelerated sales across all equipment lines. “To
remain competitive, food manufacturers in particular have been
progressive in integrating new resources to support improvements to
their packaging and product offerings. Additionally, as the economy
continues to recover, corporations are replacing outdated equipment to
maximize the overall efficiency and productivity of their operations.
Spee-Dee's sizeable ongoing investments in research and development
enable us to provide our customers with technologically superior
packaging solutions that improve fill speed and accuracy while slashing
the downtime associated with maintenance and expense,” he explained.
The new space, which will be fully occupied by late June 2011, will be
primarily utilized for final system assembly and pre-shipment
inspection. Spee-Dee has recently augmented its production resources
through the installation of additional CNC equipment that enables
internal manufacture of larger parts that were previously outsourced.
The company also continues to recruit additional employees in the areas
of assembly, engineering and service.
