Aluma Announces Plan To Purchase Building For Expansion
President Mike Lloyd said, “Over the past two and a half years, our growth has exceeded our forecasts and we needed to secure additional space quickly to secure the contracts within our dealer network. This expansion will provide the capacity necessary to meet the needs of our current dealers and will allow us to pursue additional opportunities that weren’t possible with our existing facility.”
The closing date was Nov. 1. After updates and preparations have been completed, the building will be operational by spring of 2013. The enclosed trailer line will be moved from the Bancroft plant to Emmetsburg. This move should help shorten lead times on orders from 8-10 weeks to 5-6 weeks.
Aluma is expecting to add 20 to 25 new jobs over the next three years.
Alums has been building high quality aluminum trailers and picnic tables since 1992. Trailer lines include ATV, utility, motorcycle, raft, watercraft, car hauler, snowmobile and enclosed trailers.
