Rattunde Corp., a Germany-based manufacturer of finished length tube and solid bar processing equipment, has announced plans to open a new facility near its current location in Grand Rapids, Mich.
The 30,000-sq.-ft. facility, scheduled to open in April 2014, will continue to house the North American sales and service operation and will allow for expanded spare parts inventory and manufacturing operations, including the production of tooling and various machine components. An area within the facility also will house a technical center with a machine on-site for demonstration and training.
Future plans call for an expansion of the building to more than 100,000 sq. ft., enabling the company to produce its entire finished length tube and solid bar production systems there.
