November 21, 2008—A 12,000 square-foot expansion to Service Engineering, Inc.'s Greenfield Indiana plant was completed for a ribbon-cutting ceremony October 31. The 41-year-old company manufactures automation, parts handling and feeder bowl equipment for the medical, pharmaceutical, electronics, automotive, cosmetics, consumables, fasteners, and ordnance industries.

 

"We are in the final stage of an expansion that is being done in conjunction with a major capital equipment reinvestment," says Ryan Jennings, service engineering president. "The changes that we are making will revolutionize the way our products are manufactured, and by taking these steps, we maintain our position as the leader in our industry."

 

The expansion is increasing the production work space by 23 percent in order to accommodate several recent equipment purchases. The new machinery represents a significant investment in the latest technology and includes a FLOW Waterjet cutting machine, and Amada total bending solution press brake and a Virtek QC laser scanner. In particular, the waterjet cutting machine is capable of cutting most materials regardless of hardness, including steel up to 8 inches thick.

 

"This investment in technology puts us literally on the cutting edge," Jennings says. We now have the capabilities to cut, bend and weld more efficiently than anyone in our industry. Our customers demand that our equipment be available to them at the best possible value and at the shortest available lead time. Service Engineering plans to accomplish both, and we will do it with consistency and at a volume that our competition simply cannot."

 

The company plans to make its new resources available to partners and customers to help them reduce operating expenses too. "Bringing these technologies in-house positions us to serve as a one-stop-shop for cutting, bending, welding and manufacturing," Jennings says.
