Solar Manufacturing recently secured lease on a building near its corporate headquarters in Souderton, Pa. The facility will support the manufacturing of new extraordinarily large vacuum furnaces. This addition also provides Solar Manufacturing with the needed space to support ongoing manufacturing growth.
The modern building with its 30’ high ceilings, bridge crane, and additional 15,000 square feet of manufacturing capacity makes it uniquely suited for the manufacturing of large vacuum furnaces. In 2009, Solar Manufacturing has plans to build a 36-foot long vacuum car bottom furnace and a vertical bottom loading furnace. These furnaces have been sold to customers overseas in the titanium mill products and aircraft/aerospace industries.
This additional space is needed due to continued growth, explained Jim Nagy, president of Solar Manufacturing, Inc. “This location is ideally situated close to our main operation and affords us access to adequate roads capable of special heavy haul trucking to service our domestic customers and access to near-by seaports to service our overseas customers,” he added.
Solar Manufacturing, Inc. is part of Solar Atmospheres family of companies. With combined sales of $50 million, the Solar Companies are progressive leaders in the global thermal processing industry as service providers and manufacturers.
