PKG Equipment Inc. (Rochester, N.Y.) has increased its process equipment manufacturing facility to meet the demands of its growing business of custom metal and plastic fabrication of process tanks, industrial ventilation, metal finishing systems, and waste treatment equipment. The company has added 15,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space to its 35,000-sq. ft. facility in Rochester. The plastic fabricating department has moved into the new addition which includes a 40 × 160-ft. high bay space with a crane capacity of 15 tons.
Carla Pontarelli, COO, notes significant growth in projects involving automated systems that require more in-house engineering and fabrication capacity. "Our sales have more than doubled since 2010, and we had reached maximum capacity in our facility. Many of our projects are physically larger and more complex than they used be. This additional space allows us to operate more efficiently and take on larger projects for continued growth."
