American Douglas Metals (ADM) is moving their New York location from Kenmore to an expansive, state-of-the-art facility in Buffalo this July.
The new facility represents another big move in ADM’s continued growth in 2013, serving to benefit customers, clients, employees and the company as a whole. The new 80,000 square-foot facility will provide a total upgrade in space and workflow over the current 25,000 square-foot facility in Kenmore, NY.
The move comes at a time when client demand is higher than ever and more space is needed for better operations. Fabrication and space requirements have outgrown the old facility, and the new facility presents a greater ability to improve operational efficiency by helping manufacturing flow and material handling.
Additional fabrication and manufacturing space was previously being rented to handle growing demand, resulting in high movement of materials and the corresponding delays in turnaround. With a larger facility, business growth and deliverable times will be improved in an efficient, sustainable manner.
Customers and clients will benefit the most from the facility. With an increased capacity and more space to work with, service offerings will be expanded for customers. Ranging from CNC machining to unique and custom challenges such as filling aluminum extrusions with high density structural foam, customers will get more value from ADM.
With consolidation of services and machinery into the new factory, quality control will be handled in one location and more importantly, lead times will be shortened. Quicker inventory turns will be provided and as a result of consolidation, customers will be offered improved value and support to better serve their needs.
