Atlas Pressed Metals, a producer of Powder Metallurgy parts based in DuBois, Pennsylvania, USA, is expanding its manufacturing facility at its Beaver Meadow Industrial Park site by a reported 45,000 ft2 (4,200 m2). The expansion will bring the company’s total production area to 100,000 ft(9,300 m2), and will include additional under beam clearance for the installation of larger tonnage presses.

The new construction is said to be the first phase of a multi-phase capital investment to address the company’s growth strategy. Jude Pfingstler, President of Atlas Pressed Metals, stated that future phases will be concerned with acquiring the equipment and staffing for the additional space. He explained that expansion at the company has been driven by current and projected business in the appliance, automotive, lawn and garden, recreational vehicle, industrial equipment and electric motors markets.

“New equipment for the addition will enable Atlas to grow our capacity in multi-level and higher tonnage equipment,” he commented. “Equipment tonnage is a reference to the press equipment used to manufacture powdered metal components, and the higher the tonnage of press the larger the parts that can be manufactured. Multi-level presses reflect the equipment’s ability to manufacture more complex componentry.”

Construction on the new facility is expected to complete in October, 2018.
