Flexicon Corp. has expanded manufacturing space at its headquarters in Bethlehem, Pa., by 50,000 sq. ft. to meet increased demand for its bulk handling equipment and systems, said David Boger, executive vice president of Flexicon.
The new space is slated primarily for warehousing of sub-assemblies, crating, and staging of assembled equipment. This includes stocking of Quick-Ship models of flexible screw conveyors, bulk bag dischargers and bulk bag conditioners for immediate shipment, freeing the main facility for increased capacity in fabrication and assembly.
“In 2014, we doubled the size of our Bethlehem headquarters, maximizing coverage of the existing site, so we are fortunate that a facility adjacent to our main building became available this year,” Boger said.
Flexicon holds 36 patents reflected in the designs of its flexible screw conveyors, tubular cable conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag fillers, bag dump stations, drum/box/container tippers, and weigh batching systems. A separate Project Engineering Division integrates large-scale systems across all industries in which bulk materials are handled.
