Keymark Expands Aluminum Extrusion Capabilities
A new 14-inch circle size aluminum extrusion press is now fully operational at Keymark Corp.'s Lakeland, Fla., plant. The new press enables architects and engineers to design larger, more detailed extrusions, with the width and precision not previously available in the marketplace, according to the supplier.
The extra capacity and size also propel Keymark into additional markets, it is noted. The press will add 32 million pounds of capacity to its existing 88 million pound company-wide capacity, while adding 55 new jobs in its Florida facility. With more than 500,000 square feet of production space at facilities in Lakeland and Fonda, N.Y., Keymark now operates seven presses with circle sizes ranging from 6 to 14 inches.
“For 46 years Keymark Corp. has prided itself on its commitment to the marketplace, and our investment in the new press again shows our leadership position and willingness to be a flexible, competitive partner to our clientele,” says William L. Keller III, CEO and owner. “The appeal of our new press capabilities, along with our ability to guarantee all aspects of a project, from alloy quality to finish and delivery, make us the only aluminum extruder that is vertically integrated in-house.”
