Wayne Trail Technologies, Fort Loramie, Ohio, has entered a new market segment and is constructing an additional, 30,000-sq.-ft. facility.
The company has entered the robotics, welding, and fixturing market segment by acquiring Flexible Systems Engineering Inc., Tipp City, Ohio. Michael Scott, a founder of the company, has joined Wayne Trail as marketing manager—robotics, welding, and fixturing.
The new facility, located 1 mile south of headquarters, will initially be optimized for final assembly and preshipment system trials. Preshipment test activity provides an opportunity to conduct training and equipment familiarization for its customers' operator, maintenance, and engineering teams. Wide bays, good cranage, and easy truck access enhance the company's ability to handle larger systems and work loads. The new facility will be fully operational by December 2006.
