SIOUX CENTER, Iowa, USA (April 14, 2022) — Link Mfg., Ltd., has officially opened two new facilities. Link’s 50,000-square-foot Plant 4 manufacturing and training facility is located on the company’s Sioux Center, Iowa, campus, and its new Engineering Center is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The locations will help Link accommodate its recent growth in staffing, manufacturing capabilities, engineering, software development and sales.
“The new Sioux Center and Grand Rapids facilities reflect the growth and momentum Link has continued to enjoy,” said Jim Huls, president of Link Manufacturing. “Link’s strategic focus helped drive our expansion initiatives, and these new spaces will enable us to comfortably manage the positive impact as we continue our 42-year evolution.”
Link’s campus in Sioux Center is now the manufacturing core for all of the company’s products. Targeted sectors of the building are temperature controlled, which is critical for precision manufacturing.
The light manufacturing space also offers Link the broad flexibility of being able to configure new manufacturing cells for other products as the need arises. The new Plant 4 will also serve as Link’s new consolidated shipping and receiving hub, continuing to leverage Iowa’s location near the geographic center of the country and thus major transportation corridors.
“Our new ‘Synergy Team Room’ is also located in Plant 4 and will be used for large company gatherings, corporate events, for continuing education and for new employee onboarding,” Huls said. “And we’ve been doing a lot more onboarding lately, with the addition of 50 new local staff in association with and in anticipation of the Sioux Center Plant 4 opening.”
Link’s new 15,000-square-foot Grand Rapids-based Engineering Center will help focus a new segment of Link’s product engineering team specifically engaged in developing and expanding Link’s growing suspension control technologies.
The Michigan staff’s expertise in electrical engineering, software development, testing and sales will help broaden Link’s overall capabilities and effectiveness. The Grand Rapids location also puts Link in close physical proximity to a rich industry talent pool, as the company continues to expand.
Link products are available and can be ordered through Link’s nationwide network of dealers. For more information on Link products or to find a dealer, please call (800) 222-6283 or visit https://www.linkcmp.com/suppor...
