C.R. Onsrud broke ground in the Spring of 2017 on an additional 55,000 square foot expansion to our Manufacturing Facility in Troutman, North Carolina. This $8 million investment will continue to expand our capabilities while reducing costs and increase quality by providing full control of the manufacturing process in-house. In addition to the new fabrication center, We are constructing a new media-blast booth, and adding significant capabilities to our machining output with the installation of two additional 5-face bridge mills, the MVR-30EX, and MVR-25. The space within our existing facility previously housing the fabrication department, will provide additional final assembly line bays and additional room for machine testing and customer run-offs.
These improvements are just another commitment we’re making to build the best machinery in the industry, and a big step toward the growth of our company and the jobs we’re providing here in North Carolina. Real. American. Originals. It’s not just a slogan, but a statement of who we are and what we’re building.
