Forest City Gear Invests in Haas Turning Centers

Forest City Gear has acquired three Haas turning centers to improve the throughput at its gearmaking facility. The company has made this investment, according to President Wendy Young, "...because we needed to better control our throughput and reduce the time to start up jobs. We were experiencing delays from some outside vendors and we saw problems on the horizon from such bottlenecks. Our company is always on the lookout for such conditions, because both our quality and our delivery protocols are vital to our success with current and potential customers in the world market." These new machines will be used in the company's blanking department, headed by Tommy Kalt.
