Suncor Stainless is looking towards growth to increase production and service to customers. Continuing to move forward after their recent opening of their new facility in Las Vegas, NV in May of 2017, Suncor is adding new machines, a box truck, new personnel and 35,000 square feet of production space in their facility in Plymouth, MA. They have already begun by adding positions to customer service, sales and their warehouse to keep up with the ever-expanding demand. The completion of this project in 2019 will allow Suncor to increase production of domestic products, boost inventory levels, offer faster delivery times, and reduce backorders. “We started our expansion a few years ago when we reconfigured the warehouse in Plymouth to accommodate more stock and last year when we opened the Las Vegas warehouse” says David Morgan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Suncor Stainless. “We’re now taking additional steps to grow Suncor by bringing in more people and machines to increase our domestic manufacturing, which in turn, will require more space, leading to our decision to add 35,000 square feet to our warehouse.” Most recently, 2 new machines have joined Suncor’s line-up of both Manual and CNC Machine Tools. They’ve added a Track Model #TRL 1630SX CNC Lathe and a Trak model #DPM3 CNC Bed Mill. Both machines offer conversational controls which allow more flexibility and programming options than some traditional machines, making them well suited for prototyping and for short-run production of milled and turned parts. Suncor Stainless, Inc. is a leading manufacturer for stainless steel hardware in the industrial, marine, government, architectural, OEM and commercial industries. Suncor’s modern facilities manufacture the highest quality stainless steel chain, wire rope assemblies and custom parts.
