Ferric Machinery expands with new facility
- January 5, 2016
Ferric Machinery has expanded its operations with a new 1,394 sq m (15,000 sq ft) facility in Cambridge, ON, to better service its customers.
The newly built facility features a showroom, warehouse, technical support services and offices.
Koen Verschingel, president, says he decided to expand the business because he wanted the ability to showcase the range of fabricating technologies he offers, including fiber laser cutting, a fast growing business for Ferric.
"For laser cutting, the business is heading towards fiber laser and we have a fiber laser cutting machine in our facility. When all the machines are in the facility, we'll have approximately 50 machines under power, including press brakes. ironworkers, plate and profile rollers."
He also wanted a facility where he could provide training for press brakes and for laser cutting machines.
A growing part of the business includes press brake rebuilds. Verschingel says he plans to maintain a balance between the rebuild business and new fabricating equipment sales, a strategy that has helped him grow Ferric Machinery.
"The next step for our growth is to get into the bandsaw business."
Ferric operates across Canada with support from Westside Service Ltd., Lethbridge, AB, for Western Canada, and Rogers Machine Sales, Bathurst, NB, for Eastern Canada.
