Expansion at Superior leads to increased production

By |  April 1, 2013

Superior Industries has completed an expansion project at its conveyor components factory in Morris, Minn. The 10-month expansion project involved three stages of demolition, construction and machine installation. Crews demolished 30,000 sq. ft. of old space and added 60,000 new sq. ft.

Superior reports a 60 percent increase in component production capacity with the debut of new idler, pulley and conveyor accessory production. Superior says the additional space is allowing it to improve production floor design, which ultimately speeds idlers and pulleys through the factory and improves lead times.

“The new space allows double-digit capacity increases for both our conveyor idler and pulley production processes,” says Paul Schmidgall, Superior’s vice president of manufacturing.
