Bakersfield, California-based Sierra International Machinery is citing “the overwhelming demand for the Sierra REB line of two-ram balers and conveyors” as having prompted an expansion project at its manufacturing facility in Jesup, Georgia.
What Sierra says is its fourth expansion project since the plant in Jesup opened in 2008 will add 24,000 square feet of space to its manufacturing facility there. The expansion will allow Sierra to increase its production capacity and meet steady demand for the Sierra product line, says the company.
“I’m incredibly excited to be able to expand for our fourth time in Jesup, Georgia,” says Sierra President and co-owner John Sacco. “The market acceptance of our machines has been so great that we need to increase our capacity to move more equipment through to be able to deliver on a more timely basis.”
Sacco continues, “The team at Sierra in Georgia has done incredible work of delivering quality products, top engineering, and it’s time we expand again. We are blessed beyond.”
Every machine in the Sierra product line passes through the Georgia facility, according to the company. Additionally, every Sierra two-ram baler and conveyor is fully engineered, manufactured and assembled in Georgia.
The company calls the Jesup plant “truly the birthplace of the Sierra two-ram balers,” referring to a product line that offers three different two-ram models and numerous conveyor models.
Once the phase-four expansion is completed, Sierra’s Georgia manufacturing facility will be 96,000 square feet in size.
