Fluid power technology supplier Suburban Manufacturing Group (SMG) broke ground on the company’s new 21,400-square-foot expansion on September 28, 2022. The addition will join the existing 40,300-square-foot facility located at 10531 Dalton Avenue in Monticello, Minnesota.
SMG says the expansion will allow the company to broaden its manufacturing capabilities with a continued investment in the newest technology across the machining, sewing, and assembly divisions.
“We’re focusing on automation and vertical integration to support the domestic and international growth for Tsunami, Python, and LubeMinder products,” said CEO, Chase Marshall.
The expansion is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2023 and will provide the necessary space to grow the custom sewing, assembly, and machining departments. A section of the new space will also be allocated for inventory to stay consistent with SMG’s philosophy of reduced lead times, the company says.
