Ajax Metal Forming last month finalized the purchase of a commercial building adjacent to the company’s existing facility.

This purchase increases the company’s footprint to more than 70,000 square feet, with the ability to expand to more than 100,000 square feet. “We’re clearly on track to outgrow our existing square footage,” said company co-owner Erick Ajax.

Erick said the additional floorspace will initially be used to provide for logistics and production needs. The new location will also provide much-needed parking spaces. The latest communication, networking and security systems will tie the two buildings together.

“Our workforce development programs have succeeded in providing us with the capable people we will need to continue our growth,” Erick said. “This is very exciting stuff. We’re a six-acre manufacturing campus now!”
