UniTrak hosts NMA plant tour

July 14, 2015

On July 10th, UniTrak opened its doors to NMA (Northumberland Manufacturers’ Association) members to showcase our newest improvements to our plant. After hosting the NMA board members for their monthly meeting, UniTrak started the NMA plant tour with a brief history of the company, basic information on products, services and its customers and finally what improvements have been made and where we are going from here. Pictured below are Geoff Douglas, Mackenzie Tobin and Ivan Patton, who worked hard to prepare tour stops for our guests.

Highlighted on the tour were four different areas of the plant: The Laser Cell, Paint Cell, Plastic Parts & Legacy equipment Cell and the Rubber Department. Members got a hands-on look at how these different cells produce part for our conveyors as well how they all integrate with each other. Demonstrations in the Laser cell and Rubber departments displayed our capabilities and skillsets needed to produce our conveyors – and it’s not as easy as it looks. Pictured below, Ted Gorsline helps Andrew assemble a bucket.

The focus of the improvements centered around the company’s ongoing journey with lean manufacturing.  Although some of the equipment is newly acquired, older equipment has been made more efficient and can be utilized to better serve the manufacturing processes at UniTrak.

Thank you again to all who participated in this event and we hope to see you at more NMA events in the future. For more information about the NMA and their events find their website here.
