Hoyt Wire Cloth, a division of Lumsden Corp., is undergoing a plant expansion at its headquarters in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The expansion will add about 75 percent more manufacturing and stocking space, which is needed to accommodate increased order volumes – especially for Hoyt Wire Cloth’s anti-blinding and anti-plugging Veno and Serpa product lines.

“Aggregate producers are facing the daunting task of having to produce more material, often with the same screening equipment,” says Jeff Beck, president of Hoyt Wire Cloth. “Our specialty screen lines have been developed specifically to address this issue and, thus, the demand for them is rapidly increasing.

“The passage of an infrastructure bill will add even more demand,” Beck says. “Our plant expansion will enable us to meet that increased demand and maintain excellent lead times.”

According to Hoyt Wire Cloth, the opportunity to expand was made possible when Lumsden’s Wiremation Industries division moved to a new, larger manufacturing facility nearby. Wiremation Industries manufactures metal conveyor belting for food processing, heat treating, glass production and insulation manufacturing.

Glenn Farrell, Lumsden Corp. CEO, says the added space and capacity will spur new product research and development for both company divisions.
