Munson Machinery, a maker of mixing and blending machinery, has expanded the size of its Utica, New York, headquarters location by more than 30 percent, according to Charles Divine, Munson Machinery president and CEO.
“The expansion will boost our fabrication and assembly capabilities to increase production and reduce lead times and permit reorganizing of existing manufacturing space to improve work flow and efficiency,” Divine says. “It will also allow us to increase the size of our test lab.”
The additional space includes an expanded assembly area with 22-foot-high bays and two bridge crane systems to accommodate larger machines, a new shipping and receiving area with loading dock and space for a new water jet, sheet metal rollers and additional welding centers.
The test lab, where customers can test their materials on full-sized Munson equipment, will double in size, allowing multiple tests to be conducted at the same time.
Munson Machinery equipment includes rotary batch mixers; fluidized bed mixers; ribbon, paddle and plow blenders; vee-cone blenders; rotary continuous mixers; and high intensity mixers.
Size reduction equipment made by Munson includes hammermills and shredders, screen classifying cutters, pin mills, attrition mills, lump breakers and rotary knife cutters.
