New facility expected to improve screen manufacturer’s productivity

By |  November 9, 2012

Smico and Symons Screens, now based near Oklahoma City, recently moved into a new office and manufacturing facility that is expected to improve manufacturing efficiency, shorten lead times, improve test lab capabilities and parts delivery and make room for company growth.

The company’s 45,000-sq.-ft. facility houses new equipment such as a high-definition plasma cutter, a modern overhead crane system and CNC machines, which the company says should improve production speed by more than 50 percent. In addition, the company plans to expand to another shift next year and further increase the facility size at some point.
