Horn to open new N.A. headquarters
- August 19, 2020
The new base for North American operations is approximately 110,000 square feet (10,220 square meters) and is located just around the corner from the company’s current location in Franklin, Tenn.
“Not only are we able to stay in the same general location, but it also allows us to keep all of our employees and maintain two-day delivery by UPS Ground to more than 70 per cent of our customers,” says Duane Drape, Horn’s national sales manager.
With the implementation of the new production area, once it reaches full capacity, Horn will be able to roughly triple its manufacturing output. Future additions will allow for in-house coating as well as toolholder manufacturing. The facility holds an additional 27,000 square feet (2,508 square meters) earmerked for future growth.
The new warehouse infrastructure will ramp up 350 picked line items-per-hour, from the existing capacity of 175.
