The IFH Group Inc., a metal fabricator and manufacturer of hydraulic oil reservoirs and custom fuel tanks in Rock Falls, Ill., has completed its second major expansion, increasing the company’s overall square footage from 106,000 to more than 121,000 under one roof.
The most recent addition houses nonferrous manufacturing lines, stepping up the company's capability for the production of aluminum sheet steel for its reservoirs, tanks, and other custom fabrications. The addition has enabled IFH to streamline all areas of production, from incoming raw materials to shipment of completed fabrications and tanks, to shorten lead-times to customers.
"This also enables us to expand our ferrous manufacturing by creating additional capacity for steel, stainless steel, and aluminized steel — increasing our capability for supplying large fabrications and tanks," said Keith Ellefsen, president of IFH. "We have dedicated prototyping cells, dedicated employee weld testing cells, and have added four major welding cells with large-capacity material handling equipment."
