Schmalz Announces Phase I Expansion of Headquarters

Schmalz Inc. recently hosted a groundbreaking event to celebrate the expansion to its headquarters facility at 5850 Oak Forest Drive, Raleigh, NC, together with representatives from the project implementation team.

Schmalz Inc. has been growing rapidly since it was founded in Raleigh 28 years ago. "The existing building of the U.S. headquarters was only completed in July 2016," said a company spokesperson. "Due to continued, rapid growth over the past three years, the first significant expansion is already being executed ahead of schedule. The new construction will triple the size of the existing facility and is scheduled for completion and move-in by early December. The investments to date in the Raleigh location total over $14 million, and more significant investments are already planned in the coming years. The investments in just the last few years have led to a tripling of the staff and will lead up to 62 more new jobs over the coming years with average wages above the Wake County norms."

The additional building will provide more room for assembly and testing of the growing robotic automation and material handling systems product offerings. "This new set-up will decisively improve the overall material flow at Schmalz Inc. from parts receipt, to manufacturing, testing, packaging and dispatch of the finished robot gripping tools and manipulator handling systems" said John Feutz, VP of Strategic Operations at Schmalz Inc.

Schmalz is a provider of robotic vacuum automation products, robotic end-of-arm vacuum gripper tools, material handling vacuum lifters and manipulators as well as CNC vacuum clamping tools. The organization is a third-generation, privately held international company with a history dating back over 110 years. "We pride ourselves on re-investing 8% of annual revenues every year back into R&D, hiring and training of apprentices and co-op students and are a proud member of the NCTAP Apprenticeship Program here in Raleigh," said Gary Vickerson, VP of Operations at Schmalz Inc.
