Urban Machinery Expanding and Relocating U.S. Operations
Citing growing business levels and the need for further commitment to the door and window industry on the West Coast, Urban Machinery has announced that it will relocate its U.S. operations from Tualatin, Ore., to Port Townsend, Wash., which will include expanded facilities, personnel and capabilities. Urban Machinery manufactures, sells and services fabrication, welding, cleaning and assembly equipment for door and windows and has supported the West Coast market from its Oregon facility since 1997.
The company has secured a 3-acre site in Port Townsend's growing industrial park and has begun first phase construction with a plan to move into the 10,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse, training and office space by the end of July 2006.
"We are very excited to be growing again, as this move will allow us to offer better services to our customers not only on the West Coast, but across the country," said Dave Pirwitz, vice president and chief U.S. operating officer.
The new location will house sales, service and support personnel, expanded parts warehouse and machine set-up facilities and a state-of-the-art training facility. The company is planning to maintain most of its Tualatin employees and continue a presence in the Portland area with satellite service personnel and parts stocking.
"Our Portland area customers have been a very big part of our success and it is very important to us to continue support of their operations at the highest levels," added Pirwitz. "In addition, we've hired four new equipment technicians and other support personnel in Port Townsend, putting us at six dedicated service techs on the West Coast, more than most equipment companies in our industry have supporting all of North America."
