Industrial Magnetics, Inc. recently announced a 36,000 sq. ft. addition to
the manufacturing facility in Boyne City, MI.
The large addition will more than double the existing manufacturing space.
The project strategically supports the steady business growth from existing
and new products, the growth of key channel partners, and the recent
acquisition of Walker Magnetics.
“The new space will house a variety of work cells designed for efficient
changeover to meet the wide array of products we manufacture. Additionally,
it will house 70 tons in crane capacity for large-scale projects, several
additional pieces of capital equipment and integrated loading bays to
expedite our shipment processes,” according to Casey House, IMI’s Director
Construction of the addition began last Fall, with a targeted opening date
of July 1, 2021. Once the additional space is complete, IMI’s total
manufacturing space in Boyne City will exceed 70,000 sq. ft.
“We’re very pleased to announce the expansion of our facility”, stated Craig
Scachitti, IMI’s General Manager. “We’ve taken great care to design a
construction plan that ensures as little workflow interruption as possible.
We are confident that we’ll maintain our current pace of business through
the project and be well-positioned for continued growth. Much of this
additional space is earmarked for manufacturing Walker brand products. We
are looking forward to continuing to improve on our best-in-class customer
service when the project is complete.”
