Flexicon expands global headquarters in the US
Flexicon Corporation has announced it has expanded manufacturing space at its headquarters in the USA by 4645 m2 to meet the increased demand for its bulk handling equipment and systems.
The new space is designed primarily for warehousing of subassemblies, crating and staging of assembled equipment.
This includes the stocking of Quick-Ship models of flexible screw conveyors, bulk bag dischargers and bulk bag conditioners for immediate shipment, freeing the main facility for increased capacity in fabrication and assembly.
Founded in 1974 in Fairfield, New Jersey, the company purchased its first manufacturing plant in 1978, expanded fivefold with the purchase of a plant in Phillipsburg, New Jersey, in 1988, and added a satellite plant in Easton, Pennsylvania, in 1995. US operations were then consolidated and further expanded with construction of the company’s world headquarters in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in 2001.
“In 2014 we doubled the size of our Bethlehem headquarters, maximising coverage of the existing site, so we are fortunate that a facility adjacent to our main building became available this year," Executive Vice President David Boger said.
International plant expansions include the establishment of a manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom in 1994, another in South Africa in 2001 and another in Australia in 2008.
The company’s technical sales staff has also grown through the addition of 26 factory-direct sales offices located in the US, UK, Chile, Spain, Germany, France, South Africa, Australia, Singapore and Indonesia.
"All company locations can readily draw upon Flexicon’s 25,000 worldwide installations for existing solutions to most any bulk handling problem,” said Boger.
