IBEDA Inc. division moves to new headquarters, doubles manufacturing capacity

December 11, 2007

Superflash Compressed Gas Equipment Division, IBEDA Inc., recently moved its headquarters and North American plant from North Olmsted, Ohio, to Westlake, Ohio. The renovated 27,000-sq.-ft. building has double the manufacturing capacity of the previous facility. The manufacturer of flashback arresters, quick connectors, check valves, and other safety products is a division of Applied Companies LLC.

The relocation follows an expansion and upgrade of the company's plant in Neustadt/Wied, Germany, last year. The Westlake facility, which houses administrative offices and employee training facilities, includes a temperature- and humidity-controlled LAN computer room. Most of the company's employees can be located anywhere on the 4.5-acre site by wireless telephones. The facility has a direct video link with the plant in Germany and wireless telephone coverage and computer access through a Cisco system that covers the entire site.
