Continuing its steady growth, Tubelite Inc. completed a 33,000-square-foot expansion at its facility in Walker, Michigan.  This location includes the company’s corporate office, fabrication, warehouse and shipping operations.

The addition will also accommodate a new engineering test laboratory, a new fabrication training area and larger space for extrusion racking, plus new equipment, technology and ergonomic enhancements.

“The new, additional space and layout helps us improve our process flow, resulting in ever-better lead times. The new equipment also helps us gain greater capacity to support future growth and to maintain the dependable, high-quality of our products and reliable service that our customers count on us to provide,” says Steve Jaskolski, Tubelite’s vice president of operations.

He adds, “The expansion allows us to remain in our current location and continue many benefits the area offers. The Grand Rapids and western Michigan area continues to grow and provides Tubelite with outstanding staffing opportunities. Our location is easily accessible from the two main highways going through the area.”
