Flex-A-Seal is pleased to announce that we have expanded our manufacturing facility in Essex Junction, Vermont. The expansion will allow us to employ up to 15 additional Vermonters skilled in all areas of the manufacturing process.
The new addition is located at 24 New England Drive and contains space for offices, manufacturing, and storage. The expansion adds 10,000 square feet of production space in addition to the current 26,000 square foot Jackson Street location. The New England Drive facility is designated for the manufacture of our Style 85 split cartridge mechanical seal.
We are also in process of purchasing new CNC lathes and mills as well as moving some Jackson Street machinery to the new facility.
“This expansion provides an attractive and adaptable space for us to expand our capabilities in this time of positive and aggressive growth” said Hank Slauson, president and owner of Flex-A-Seal. “We explored the options of constructing an addition at Jackson Street as well as relocating to an entirely new site. The New England Drive facility offers us a nearby location where we can implement a new manufacturing arrangement with no downtime in production. We will hit the ground running!”
