Booming Business for Macro Leads to 40% Plant Expansion
Macro Engineering & Technology Inc., has expanded its production facilities to accommodate a recent boom in sales activity.
Following predictable subpar sales through 2009, Macro’s sales have excelled over the last three months, returning the company to the record setting sales levels it had enjoyed in 2008. The elevated workload has lead Macro to expand to a neighboring building to make room for the extra production. The building, which will increase Macro’s production floor space by approximately 40%, will be used mainly for setting up and testing machinery prior to shipment.
Macro has also increased its employee base by 15% since December, primarily through the acquisition of mechanical engineers and project managers to help handle the elevated workload.
“Sales have been taken for a variety of machine types ranging from multilayer blown film lines, to specialty extrusion systems, to custom-built winding equipment,” states Andrew Erskine, Macro’s Sales & Marketing Coordinator. “The orders are from both local and global customers with European, South American, Chinese, Canadian and U.S. markets being the most prominent.”
