April 11, 2013 – Intertec Instrumentation opened a new extension to its Sarnia, Ont., manufacturing facility, enhancing its ability to make field instrumentation shelters, cabinets and enclosures for the North American market.
“This investment allows us to shave around 25% off the manufacturing times for many of our outdoor enclosures and shelters, and gives us much greater flexibility to meet the fast-changing demand from our processing customers,” said Phil Luppke, general manager.
The company says the new facility allows it to make major efficiency gains in the production of field cabinets and shelters, which are often used to house process analyzers. The building also houses a patented new CNC manufacturing process that allows instrumentation and control engineers to specify the precise dimensions they need for their particular outdoor enclosure.
The production area is housed in a new 15,000-ft building, increasing the size of Intertec’s Sarnia factory by more than a third.
