Major expansion of building will nearly double the size of our production facility and significantly increase our manufacturing capabilities.
To meet the increasing demand for our tooling, American Punch Company announces we have begun construction on a major plant expansion of our building that will nearly double the size of our production facility and significantly increase our manufacturing capabilities. The new addition to the existing facility will add 23,000 square feet of plant space and 1,000 sq. ft. of office space. Two 80-ton air conditioning units are being installed to cool both the new addition as well as the existing plant. This new addition, along with a large investment of new manufacturing equipment featuring cutting edge technology, is just part of our plans for growth and sustainability into the future. This expansion signals our commitment to our customers and the industries we serve. We are committed to providing our customers the highest quality tooling, delivered on time, at a fair price.
To sustain their efforts to be environmentally friendly, American Punch has opted to install 800 solar panels on the roof of the new building that, over the next 25 years, will produce over 7 million kilowatts of electricity. This will result in reducing their CO2 emissions by over 11 million pounds, equal to taking about 65 cars off the road for each of the next 25 years.
“We’ve worked for several years to design and plan this building and the additional new equipment to meet our manufacturing demands well into the future,” says Bob Olson, president of American Punch. “We will be positioned to meet our customers’ increasing need for high quality tooling, delivered sooner, particularly precision tooling and engineered, made-to-order components. With all of the new cutting-edge technology in today’s equipment that will be housed in the new addition, we’ll have a world-class operation ready to manufacture any tooling our customers may need.”
