ADM Moves into Larger Facility in Buffalo
American Douglas Metals, a distributor, processor and fabricator for commercial and industrial applications, has moved its New York location from Kenmore to a larger facility in Buffalo. The new 80,000-square-foot facility is a major increase from the 25,000-square-foot operation the company exited.
ADM officials say the company’s fabrication and space needs outgrew the old facility. The new plant offers a greater opportunity to boost operational efficiency by improving manufacturing flow and material handling. ADM previously had to rent more fabrication and manufacturing space to handle growing demand, resulting in high movement of materials and the corresponding delays in turnaround.
With its increased capacity, ADM will be able to expand its service offerings for customers. New options include CNC machining and the ability to fill aluminum extrusions with high-density structural foam, the company said.
