38 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK PIVOT POINT INC. 761 Industrial Lane, PO Box 488, Hustisford, WI 53034 TEL 1-800-222-2231 FAX 920-349-3253 EMAIL WEB PIVOT POINT INCORPORATED COMPLETES FACTORY EXPANSION Pivot Point Incorporated, a manufacturer of Non-Threaded Fastener solutions, has completed a 30,000 square foot expansion to their manufacturing facilities in Hustisford, Wisconsin. This will bring their total manufacturing campus to nearly 100,000 square feet. Bayland Buildings of Green Bay, WI was the general contractor and erected a steel frame building that allows for a greater clear span of the interior space, thus optimizing work and traffic flow for manufacturing. Says owner Sol Leitzke: “We’ve invested heavily in equipment, especially automation, so that we can have the best value proposition in quality, pricing and lead times. This has resulted in robust, steady growth- we’re practically bursting at the seams. This factory expansion will allow us to continue to add equipment and continue to grow without constraint.” Notably, the expansion included the installation of a 150-foot tall flagpole believed to be one of the tallest in the state of Wisconsin. Pivot Point hosted a public Dedication Ceremony on October 26th, raising the flag for the first time. Nearly 300 people attended. As part of the ceremony, Pivot Point President Dave Zimmermann provided a summary of the Leitzke family’s history in fastener manufacturing. In 1929, Rein Leitzke founded Leitzke Specialties, manufacturing fasteners and hardware primarily for the agricultural market. His son Glayr joined the company and they together ran a successful manufacturing operation for many years until the company was sold in 1970. In the early 1980’s, Glayr and his son Rue resurrected the company under the name Pivot Point Incorporated. The company grew steadily and the product line evolved into ever more sophisticated, unique and even patented, propriety fasteners. The company now serves a multitude of markets. In 2016 Rue’s son Sol purchased the business and continues the Leitzke Family’s fastener manufacturing tradition. BUSINESS FOCUS ARTICLE CONTINUED ON PAGE 110
