Our new facility will support the additional manufacturing assets needed to not only grow our manufacturing volumes but also to allow expansion into new markets that require new and different tool sets and processes." Perkins also wanted to thank all the employees that worked to make the move as seamless as possible. "It's a testament to the quality and integrity of our employees that during the many months over which the move occurred we did not miss a single scheduled delivery."
