It is an exciting time here at SAS. Along with face lifting our website allowing for easier cell phone browsing, retrieval of technical data, and just an overall more eye pleasing experience. We have recently purchased and renovated a second facility allowing us to work towards increasing our capacity 5 fold.
Our new facility is in Elizabeth City, NC and is 4x larger then our Manorville, NY facility. Since its purchase we have been working on renovating it and have done a complete facelift on the offices and provided both cosmetic and climate improvements to the manufacturing portion with 40,000 sq ft of tile, (3) 24′ Industrial fans from Big Ass Fans, major infrastructure (electric, air, plumbing, lighting) upgrades and easier more secure facility access with various security cameras and access control at all entry and exit points.
In anticipation of on-lining the facility towards full production we have already began working towards the proper AS9100 and ISO registration and other regulatory approvals.
Finally, we have heavily invested in some new equipment that is just starting to arrive. We have purchased brand new (2) Flow Mach 300s, each boasting 4 cutting heads and a 5′ x 10′ cutting area along with a new 42″ x 42″ triple platten molding press that will allow us to make the much larger sheets that everyone has been waiting for. In addition to the new purchases to come we are pulling some equipment in from our Manorville, NY facility in order to allow for a better work flow at that facility, which will continue to operate as it always has.
We look forward to continuing to work with all of our great customers and suppliers in the years to come as we expand our footprint and continue to all grow together!
