FKI Logistex consolidates manufacturing and engineering locations

By Plant Engineering Staff June 16, 2006

FKI Logistex announces the consolidation of some of its North American manufacturing and engineering locations within its Airport, Post and Parcel division to take advantage of operational efficiency opportunities.

Manufacturing in the company’s Frederick, MD factory will be transferred to its manufacturing facilities in Danville, KY and Cincinnati, while engineering and support functions located in Dallas will be consolidated within the company’s facilities in Louisville, KY.

“In our last business year, FKI Logistex sales grew by 14% but continued investment in our operational infrastructure, IT systems, people, and business processes now means that we can deliver this increased level of sales within a smaller operational footprint,” said Steve Ackerman, president, FKI Logistex North America. “We are therefore taking this opportunity to streamline our activities across fewer sites.”
