Aluminum extrusion manufacturer Keymark Corp., headquartered in Fonda, N.Y., announced plans last week to install a large aluminum extrusion press as part of a multi-million dollar expansion project at its plant in Lakeland, Fla.

The new UBE, 3,000-ton hydraulic press, capable of producing aluminum extrusions up to 14 inches in circle size, will be installed adjacent to Keymark’s existing 140,000 square foot facility, according to the company. The new facility will incorporate an additional 104,000 square feet of floor space and will leave room for additional future expansion.

“Our plans are to install another paint line (vertical) and fabrication equipment to our operations in Lakeland, Fla., in the future,” says Tony Maiolo, chief operations officer. “The new aluminum extrusion press will compliment Keymark’s full range of service capabilities and will allow greater design opportunities for new and existing markets.”

Keymark of Florida currently houses two 7-inch aluminum extrusion presses.

“The installation of the new press will strengthen our already full service capabilities and will clearly set us apart from the competition,” says William L. Keller, III, president.
