Hufcor, Inc. Invests in Additional Capacity in the Form of a New, Operable Wall Production Line
JANESVILLE, Wis., March 2, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Completed in early February, Hufcor’s new line will be capable of manufacturing Hufcor’s full portfolio of customized operable wall systems. The result is a 25% increase in capacity in the Janesville facility to help serve the needs of customers all year round, especially when the building & construction industry heats up.
Operable partitions and movable glass wall systems continue to gain momentum as solutions for flexible space in hospitality, commercial and educational market segments. “Our customer focus is to provide a quality product within the desired lead time of our customers and building owners, which was our intent with this new and welcomed investment,” said Mike Kontranowski, Sr. VP of Sales & Marketing. These operational efficiencies will allow us to offer short, turn-key solutions to the commercial tenant fit-out market.
The new line is part of a larger initiative to not only increase capacity in Janesville but also to increase the overall production efficiency in the plant as well. “When new management arrived on the scene, we decided early on we had to put a renewed focus on putting the customer first which made this investment an easy decision from the perspective that it would ensure competitive lead times and timely delivery of product to our customers,” said Kyle Patterson, VP of Operations. He went on to say, “We’ve also made a conscious effort to implement lean methodologies and six sigma practices across our Operations organization in an effort to augment our collective operational competency and this line represents a step forward in that regard.”
