Vecoplan LLC has broken ground on its latest plant expansion in Archdale, North Carolina. The plant will be committed solely to manufacturing shred trucks for the secure information destruction industry.
Luke James, Vecoplan LLC sales manager, mobile division, says increased customer demand is the driving force behind the expansion. “We’re going to deliver what our customers have been asking for,” he says. Vecoplan’s investment in “cutting-edge equipment and highly skilled personnel … will double our production capacity and cut lead times to an absolute minimum,” James adds.
Once completed, Vecoplan will have 50,000 square feet of dedicated manufacturing space at its U.S. headquarters in Archdale. The new factory will use streamlined modular assembly lines that maximize production efficiency and facilitate future expansions, according to the company.
During the groundbreaking ceremony, Vecoplan Chief Sales Officer Bob Gilmore welcomed attendees and reiterated Vecoplan’s intent to continue leading the market with innovation, quality and rapid response to customer’s needs.
“This facility and the very significant investment further solidifies our ongoing commitment to the information management and secure destruction market,” he said. “When complete, this expansion will put Vecoplan in a better position to provide quick delivery of the products the market is demanding”.
