Epec Engineered Technologies Completes $500,000 Facilities Upgrade
[May 1, 2013: New Bedford, MA] Epec Engineered Technologies, one of the fastest growing companies in the electronics industry, announced today that it has completed a $500,000 upgrade to their New Bedford, MA facility. Among the many physical plant improvements involved were new heavy duty flooring and custom ceiling renovations with new lighting. HVAC facilities were also revamped to allow improved temperature-controlled storage capabilities, and an increase in shelving now provides more efficient storage and shipping.
Along with the plant improvements, Epec put significant investment into new equipment to expand in-house test and manufacturing capabilities. This included an upgrade to the X-Ray Fischerscope, a RMS Power Analyzer, a Mistral Keypad Test System, two multi-material automatic cutters, a Nicomatic crimping press and a second full set of test equipment to support their domestic battery manufacturing services.
Epec has also made improvements to two of their Tech Centers. A full Air Flow Test Chamber was added to their Fan & Motor facility in Wales, UK, and Epec's Battery Design and Tech Center in Denver, CO got a new TI fuel gauge interface and LaMantia Battery Analyzer Software.
"Investing in our ability to deliver world class solutions to our customers has always been a priority for Epec," says Dana LaFlash, Epec's VP of Finance & Manufacturing. "Every year, we budget a percentage of our revenue to be reinvested into our business so that we can always be on the leading edge of technology."
