The Executive Committee of Wulftec International announces the injection of over $1 million into its Ayer’s Cliff manufacturing plant to accommodate its growing business and order book.
This starts the construction of a new, 10,000 sq. ft. operations area at the Ayer’s Cliff plant, an addition which will bring the total surface area of the plant to 146 000 sq. feet. The project is divided in two phases: the construction of the addition, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of July, and the reorganization of the production line which is scheduled for completion at end of August. The completion of phase two will enable Wulftec to shorten its delivery lead time and process a larger number of orders.
This expansion secures the 197 jobs at the Ayer’s Cliff plant and will likely bring the creation of many new jobs in the medium and long term. In the course of the last year, the number of employees working at Wulftec went from 183 to 197. Thanks to this ambitious expansion project, Wulftec ensures the maintenance of its competitive position on the market and particularly, remaining a world leader of packaging equipment: pallet stretch wrapping equipment, pallet strapping equipment, and heavy-duty conveyor system.
