Waste handling and recycling equipment manufacturer Sebright Products Inc. of Hopkins, Michigan, says it has expanded its production facility to accommodate growing demand for its patented recycling equipment. The company has been designing and manufacturing equipment since 1984.
Brent Sebright, president and CEO of Sebright Products, says, “We are very blessed to have exemplary employees that have been instrumental in this expansion project.”
The expansion includes a 15,800-square-foot climate-controlled addition to the company’s main manufacturing facility that is equipped with a 30-ton capacity overhead crane, four jib cranes, a 10-foot-by-25-foot plasma table and machining center capable of processing steel up to 4 inches thick. Sebright also recently added two 3,500-square-foot storage buildings.
The company says it plans to complete the addition of a parts and service office, an electrical assembly addition and paint booth prep and final inspection area in the spring of 2020.
Gary Brinkmann, managing director of Sebright Products International, adds, “Sebright Products’ founders created this company to provide jobs for the local community. This expansion is the embodiment of that commitment, and we are thrilled to continue to invest in our community’s future.”
The company says it employs more than 90 people and will be adding positions for welders and other technical personnel.
Sebright Products manufactures and sells a wide variety of waste handling and recycling solutions, including compactors and balers for industrial and recycling applications, automobile oil filter recyclers, expanded polystyrene densifiers, belt filter presses, as well as solutions to depackage and bale contained liquids, such as juice boxes, aluminum cans, plastic bottles and other packaging.
