In today’s fast-paced manufacturing industry, staying ahead of the curve is essential for businesses to remain competitive. By investing in new equipment, expanding facilities, and improving communication systems, companies can enhance their production capabilities and deliver superior quality products. Let’s explore some of the recent developments at New England Wire Technologies, highlighting improvements in cabling and extrusion, finite testing, infrastructure, machine shop upgrades, the incorporation of new equipment in our Littleton facility, as well as the planned Lisbon facility expansion.
To bolster our manufacturing capabilities, we have recently added additional equipment, resulting in improved capacity in cabling and extrusion processes. These enhancements allow us to efficiently meet growing demands and increase production volumes. By expanding our equipment lineup, we can provide our customers with high-quality cables and extruded components promptly.
We recognize the importance of rigorous testing to ensure the reliability and performance of our products. With a specific focus on coaxes and thin mil walls, we have invested in advanced testing equipment to enhance our finite testing capabilities. These improvements enable us to carry out comprehensive assessments and quality checks, ensuring that our cables meet and exceed industry standards.
To improve efficiency and productivity, we have implemented a more sophisticated infrastructure and enhanced communication systems between machines and our Manufacturing Execution System (MES). This integration allows for seamless data exchange, real-time monitoring, and efficient coordination between various manufacturing processes. The upgraded infrastructure enables us to streamline operations, minimize downtime, and ensure accurate tracking of production metrics.
Our commitment to continuous improvement extends to our machine shop as well where we have implemented various upgrades and optimizations to enhance our ability to customize and fabricate both our manufacturing equipment and tooling. These improvements enable us to deliver precision components with shorter lead times while maintaining the highest quality standards.
We are excited to announce the introduction of new equipment into our Littleton, NH facility. This expansion marks the beginning of cell manufacturing in that space, allowing us to further streamline our production processes. The incorporation of new equipment will enhance our overall manufacturing efficiency, reduce cycle times, and enable us to meet the evolving needs of our customers more effectively.
And finally, as part of our commitment to growth and innovation, we are currently in the design phase of a significant expansion project at our Lisbon, NH facility. The addition of a 37,000 square foot space is underway and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2024. This expansion will provide us with additional room to accommodate new machinery, streamline operations, and further optimize our production processes. By expanding our facilities, we are positioning ourselves to meet future market demands and better serve our customers. You can learn more about this project here.
