SDP/SI Expands Machining Capacity with New Engineering and Manufacturing Facility
April 21, 2017
Stock Drive Products/Sterling Instrument (SDP/SI), a leader in comprehensive motion control and power transmission solutions, is operating in a brand-new world-class facility designed to greatly improve efficiencies and lead times. The 96,000-square-foot facility is located at 250 Duffy Avenue in Hicksville, New York, less than 10 miles from its former location of 45 years.
“This is a very exciting time for us; the new facility will easily meet current capacity requirements and gives the company ample room for growth as the shop assumes additional machining work,” said Robert Kufner, president and CEO.
“The needs of our customers and the wide variety of projects we tackle here at SDP/SI are more demanding than ever before in terms of quality and delivery,” said Wayne Martin, vice president of operations. “Housing the entire company in one location will streamline workflow, free up bottlenecks, and improve responsiveness to customer’s changing needs. The plant and equipment upgrades give us the ability to shorten lead times, improve quality, and decrease cost.”
New CNC machining centers have replaced some of the older equipment and increases capacity by having the capability of running 24/7.
