Manufacturing Move to Colorado Technology Center to Accommodate Future Growth and Operational Excellence
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions announces that it is relocating its lean manufacturing operations of engineered seal and bearing for advanced applications in aerospace, automotive, life sciences and offshore oil and gas industries to the prestigious Colorado Technology Center in Louisville, Colorado, U.S.
Having signed a 10-year lease agreement, the company’s move to a larger facility will comprise nearly 76,000 square feet of the center’s state-of-the-art industrial complex. Plans for its move of 125 employees and long-standing Broomfield manufacturing operations will begin in the second quarter and be fully operational by October 2014.
Tom Potosky, General Manager, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, Broomfield says: “We are very excited about this expansion as it affords us the opportunity to continue to serve our current business effectively as well as positions us to better leverage new opportunities for continued growth of our sealing business. By having staff and manufacturing operations reside in one larger high-tech facility, we will not only be able to take advantage of advanced technology and equipment, but also gain a more streamlined and collaborative environment to support Trelleborg’s focus on operational excellence.”
