Mustang Advanced Engineering and Mustang Dynamometer today announced that the Company has completed a 31,000 sqft facility expansion to its Twinsburg Assembly Plant.
The project, which broke ground in late August, adds 3 new high-bay manufacturing cells, each equipped with multiple 10-ton overhead cranes and one 20-ton crane. The additional assembly space will facilitate construction of the larger scale equipment that the Mustang Advanced Engineering division designs and manufactures. The new space will also serve to provide back-up manufacturing capacity for the Company’s Vacuum Solar Division. Based in Sarasota, Mustang Vacuum produces a line of thin film solar cell manufacturing equipment.
Since opening the expanded facilities earlier this month, assembly of several large-scale projects has already begun to utilize the new space and assembly cranes. The first project to begin assembly in the new facility is a Heavy-Duty AWD 48” Roll Chassis Dynamometer that is being built for The Ohio State University. In addition to The Ohio State dyne, other large projects for Coda Automotive and Anniston Army Depot have been launched in the expanded space.
“This facility expansion and the improvements that have been made to our assembly processes have already resulted in significant improvements to our operational work flow and production efficiency”, said Eser Manav, Vice President Operations.
“The latest state-of-the-art resources in the newly expanded factory are helping Mustang reshape our cost structure and production rates to become the most efficient manufacturer in the industry”, said President and CEO, Dean Ganzhorn.
