Located in Dublin, Ga., YKK AP America's 800,000-square foot
national manufacturing center will be undergoing a capacity expansion.
According to an announcement from Oliver Steppe, senior vice president,
expansion efforts, which are slated for completion in the third
and fourth quarter of this year, will include workforce additions,
additional machinery and tooling and further automation in its
custom door and window fabrication plant.
The expansion is designed to reduce lead times for fabricated
products, reinforce customer satisfaction in the "Express"
and "FBZ" fast service programs and to prepare for new
products, reported Steppe.
