General Sheet Metal Works, South Bend, Ind., has increased the size of its Tomah, Wis., plant from 22,500 sq. ft. to 45,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space.
The company says the additional capacity allows it to gain production efficiencies for current work and accommodate new business. The project includes new laser and press brake capacity, as well as expansion of the weld shop. The company's TRUMPF lasers cut carbon steel up to 3/4 in. thick from plates up to 72 in. by 144 in.
A manufacturer of metal components, assemblies, and weldments, General Sheet Metal Works capabilities include laser, press brake, punch, punch/plasma, and manual and robotic welding production. The company expects the expansion to add up to 10 jobs to its 17-employee work force.
