Thursday, 27 September 2012 09:01
NORTH MANKATO, Minn. – Aluma recently announced plans for expansion with the purchase of a 105,000-sq.-ft. building in Emmetsburg, Iowa. Terms agreed to with Skyjack Manufacturing, Inc., will allow Aluma to purchase the building in order to support the production requirements of its growing network of aluminum trailer dealers. The facility will provide space for warehousing, production, research and development of the enclosed trailer line.
Aluma is a privately held company by Kaye Corporation, headquartered in North Mankato, Minn. In 2000, Kaye Corporation purchased Aluma’s manufacturing plant in Bancroft, Iowa.
Aluma President Mike Lloyd stated, “Over the past two and a half years, our growth has exceeded our forecasts and we needed to secure additional space quickly to secure the contracts within our dealer network. This expansion will provide the capacity necessary to meet the needs of our current dealers and will allow us to pursue additional opportunities that weren’t possible with our existing facility.”
The closing date is November 1st. After updates and preparations have been completed, the building will be operational by spring of 2013. The enclosed trailer line will be moved from the Bancroft plant to Emmetsburg. This move should help shorten lead times on orders from 8 – 10 weeks to 5 – 6 weeks. Aluma is expecting to add 20 to 25 new jobs over the next three years.
