Litron Buys New Building, Upgrades Equipment
Litron, an Agawam, MA supplier to the aerospace and medical industries for services in laser welding, laser systems, hermetic sealing, and electronic packaging, has invested more than $1 M to purchase a 9,500-square-foot facility just four doors down from its existing 23,500- square-foot facility and to upgrade and expand upon its equipment and service offerings.
The new 45 Bowles Road facility will allow Litron to break out its service offerings based on its two most prominent industries, medical and aerospace. The existing 207 Bowles Road facility will service the medical clientele, while the new 45 Bowles Road building will service the aerospace clientele.
“Litron’s Medical clients will continue to see the same level of quality and reliability as they always have,” says Mark Plasse, President. “With the Aerospace manufacturing moving to the new facility, we’ll now have room to expand our laser processing services from at least three new manned stations to additional unmanned tube cutting systems.”
“In addition to the new equipment, existing equipment will be shifted around and upgraded to allow for more efficient processing of jobs and increased capacity,” says Mike Chmura, Laser Services Manager.
The existing building will also continue to house the Laser Systems division and theLaser Hermetic Sealing division. “These two areas support clients from both the Aerospace and Medical markets and will continue to do so as Litron expands,” says Plasse.
