North Andover, MA (PRWEB) January 25, 2006
L-com, Inc., of North Andover, MA, is pleased to announce the expansion of its manufacturing operation into a second building. The acquisition of the 13,000 sq/ft facility, is a result of the phenomenal increase in sales over the past few years.
These changes are part of a structured growth plan for L-com that focuses on improving customer expectations and product availability. The additional facility is located a quarter mile from the home office and allows for:
· Improved material and product flow
· Additional space for manufacturing engineers
· Additional space for future product line expansion and custom capabilities
According to Thomas Barczak, L-com's quality manager, "This is an exciting event because it allows us to gain needed floor space and, more importantly, to improve how we manufacture." The new facility features state-of-the-art lighting, composite flooring, improved computer systems, and a more efficient layout design, all of which have had an immediate effect on employees and product yield.
"We've already seen how much happier and more productive our manufacturing staff is in the new space," said Al Contarino, President of L-com. "We are committed to manufacturing here in the Merrimack Valley region of New England, which is why we invested in the new space."
The warehouse has also benefited by gaining an extra 8,000 sq/ft. This will allow L-com to stock more of its best selling items and further fulfill its long-held policy of same-day shipping for all stock items. Furthermore, the higher availability of components and more space for machinery will eventually improve on custom product turn-around.
