Rock West Composites (RWC) recently invested significant capital in its facilities and personnel to expand its custom production services in 2015. RWC is already well known for its online composites store that offers an extensive array of pre-manufactured tubes, plates, panels, rods, angles, raw materials, and accessories. The company’s manufacturing facilities are located in West Jordan, Utah with headquarters in San Diego, CA.

Looking towards the future, RWC finished expanding into its 66,000-square-foot facility, of which it occupies 48,000 square feet. The business utilizes all but a portion, currently sublet, that leaves RWC poised for additional expansion as larger production jobs come to the business. It is a building which Rock West owns and that provides financial stability to the enterprise. Recent capital expenditures include equipment for composite processing, machining, and testing. Manufacturing space is laid out efficiently to provide production growth space.

Also, the business has invested in additional personnel, including Stuart Gleason, Engineering Manager. A degreed mechanical engineer with extensive experience in a variety of composites manufacturing processes, Mr. Gleason brings knowledge to the business that will help customers achieve their objectives in the most cost effective manner. With an emphasis on customer service, manufacturing viability, and operational efficiency, his skillset will be an asset to RWC’s growth efforts in the custom product market.

“While custom work has always been a large component of our business, we know there is a growing need among our clients for unique products with specific mechanical properties,” said Dave Erickson, General Manager of RWC. “Our goal is to be ready to meet the need for customization with efficient operations already in place and the infrastructure to support our customers with the best service possible.”
