AJ Manufacturing moves to larger facility, adds new equipment and increases capacity by 50 percent.
AJ Manufacturing, supplier of stainless steel air distribution products for critical environments, recently completed its move into a new 70,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and headquarters building that has resulted in a 50 perccent increase in capacity.
The company, which specializes in serving critical environments such as hospitals, laboratories, and cleanrooms, produces a range of standard and custom stainless steel HVAC products, including diffusers, grilles, dampers, and louvers. McNeil Pharmaceuticals, Walter Reed National Medical Center, University of Kansas Hospital, and Uniersity of Texas Health Science Center are among users in the pharmaceutical, medical, and healthcare space.
The new facility in suburban Kansas City, MO more than doubles the space of AJ’s previous manufacturing plant, according to the company. A new tower loader for its laser cutting machines gives the company multiple automated high-speed lasers capable of running 24 hours a day. The facility also features a new powder coating system for a more homogeneous finish with improved color quality.
“We were able to design the new building from the ground up to maximize efficiency and plan for future growth. The increased space and new equipment will speed production, dramatically increase capacity and help reduce our already excellent lead times,” Tony Williams, general manager of AJ Manufacturing, said, adding that the company’s Criti-Clean fan filter unit includes higher cubic foot per minute (CFM) output, room-side CFM display and control, and optional built-in surgical-grade lighting.”
