Facility relocates to accommodate growth
Vecoplan Midwest more than doubles its space to accommodate growth as sales of existing products increase and product offerings expand.
Vecoplan Midwest recently relocated to an 18,180-sq ft facility located in New Albany, Ind. According to Bill Miller, COO of Vecoplan Midwest, the move was necessitated by continuing growth of their shredder sales and service business and the introduction of briquetters, pellet mills and complete pelletizing systems to their product offerings in 2010.
Vecoplan shredders are used in industrial scale recycling, while their briquetting and pelletizing systems are used in the production of alternative fuels. “In order to meet the demands of sales and production, we’ve tripled our staff in the last six years. So we’re delighted to move into this new space and are excited to be a part of the growing recycling and alternative energy markets in North America,” states Mr. Miller.
In addition to 2,000 sq. ft. of office space, the new facility houses a 10,180 sq. ft. machine rebuild center and a 6,000 sq. ft. test lab/show room space, where customers can send their material to be shredded, briquetted or pelletized. “Customers are always welcome to visit and see their material being processed from start to finish,” adds Miller.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
