SAKOR Technologies Inc.
, a provider of high-performance dynamometer systems, is expanding its operations. The company has moved from its previous facility in Okemos, Michigan, to a larger facility in Owosso, Michigan, following rapid growth over the past several years.
The new facility, which will house the company’s administrative, engineering and manufacturing operations together, formerly housed Baker College’s Auto/Diesel Institute of Michigan. As such, the building’s design and facilities are ideal for SAKOR’s needs: it currently measures 20,000-square-feet, has ample high-voltage electrical power and is laid out in a way that is suited to SAKOR’s manufacturing needs, the company says.
The new facility’s production bays are large enough to accommodate manufacturing more products at one time and manufacturing much larger, more sophisticated projects on-site than were previously possible, the company says. These building features will play a part in sustaining SAKOR’s accelerating growth curve into the future.
“We’ve been growing for quite some time, and since our growth rate has been accelerating dramatically in recent years, we felt that it was time to find a new facility that is better suited to both our current and future production needs. Fortunately, this building was available and is a prime location for the next phase of SAKOR’s growth,” said Randal Beattie, president of SAKOR. “Our team is excited for this next stage, and was motivated to move into the new building quickly in order to continue manufacturing without delays.”
While SAKOR says it will likely undertake renovations to the new building in the near future, the company was able to move into the new space quickly, allowing it to keep up with a busy production schedule and meet all promised delivery dates.
