Koike Expands Main Manufacturing Facility
Koike Aronson, Inc./Ransome, has opened a 30,000-square-foot expansion of its main facility in Arcade, N.Y. The company added both manufacturing and office space during the expansion.
“Our business has increased tremendously over the past several years” says CEO Jerry Leary, noting that about a third of Koike’s sales are overseas. The expansion was completed to help meet rising demand for all of its cutting and welding equipment, used in a range of heavy industries such as mining, energy and transportation.
The new area, designed to be energy efficient, houses the company’s Positioner Assembly Department, as well as two new 600-square-foot paint booths. It is served by a pair of overhead cranes. The expansion takes Koike’s facility to 167,000 square feet, with room to allow for an additional 70,000 in the future.
