Intellivation is pleased to announce a new manufacturing expansion which will be completed in early 2023. “This expansion will significantly increase our capacity for manufacturing and support our machine shop work flow. We will be adding some exciting new equipment to our machine shop which will allow us to do complete vacuum chamber machining in-house.” says Mike Simmons, Intellivation president. “Installing capacity, particularly in our machine shop helps us control our build time for our vacuum chambers and roll to roll coating equipment. Like everyone, dealing with logistics and supply chain changes has made us rethink our project planning and manufacturing flow. This expansion supports the changes the team has implemented to support our customers and commitments and helps insulate us from supply chain fluctuations.” Intellivation moved to a new state of the art facility in 2020 designed specifically for manufacturing vacuum coating equipment used in a wide range of industries and a variety of applications. This expansion will add 5,000 square feet to the existing facility.
“This expansion along with the recent and continued growth of our team will only reinforce our ability to deliver to the high standards our customers and the industry expects from Intellivation. Our innovative team, system designs, and controls are constantly improving to provide the best possible solution for depositing precision quality coatings using a range of deposition technologies”, states Mike.
