Atlas Pressed Metals, DuBois, Pennsylvania, USA, has completed a 45,000 ft2 (approx. 4,000 m2) expansion to its facility at Beaver Meadow Industrial Park, DuBois. The addition is said to bring the company’s total plant size to nearly 100,000 ft2 (approx. 9,200 m2).
This is Atlas’ third addition to its original Tom Mix Drive plant and features twenty feet of under-beam clearance at its peak. Original office space has been retained and unchanged, but due to recent growth in professional staff and skilled labour at the company, the sales department was relocated to a nearby office building in Spring 2018.
Total employment at Atlas is currently around 115 employees, following a staffing increase of 15% in 2018. Immediate use of the new space is set to provide additional room for shipping, finished goods, work in process and inspection.
Jude Pfingstler, President of Atlas Pressed Metals, stated, “With the building done we have turned our focus internally. Over the next several months we will install some new equipment including the installation of some secondary equipment to support increased demand.”
