IA Moves to Larger Facility, Sees Increased Growth Ahead
ROCHESTER NY: June 9, 2008 While many other American companies are reducing capacity and manpower, Induction Atmospheres (IA), a leading manufacturer and system integrator of customized industrial heating equipment, has moved to a larger facility to meet increasing demand for its products.
"We were really getting cramped in the old building", says Steve Skewes, IA President and CEO. "We need the extra space to expand our new metallurgical lab, and to provide more room for our growing engineering group, assembly areas, applications lab, and in-house machine shop."
The new Rochester location, at 35 Industrial Park Circle, is just two miles south from IA’s old location at 777 Elmgrove Road. The new building provides 19,000 sq. ft of space; the company started in 2002 with just 4,000 sq. ft. Employment has also grown from four employees in 2002 to over 15 today, and the company is advertising to hire more electrical and mechanical engineers.
"We have our customers to thank for our continued growth", says Dale Wilcox, IA Vice President for Engineering. "We invest a lot of time and resources to build close working relationships with each of our customers, and we are seeing a lot of referrals and repeat business as a result."
IA heating systems are most often used for industrial applications such as metal brazing and heat treating. IA is the only independently-owned industrial heating system integrator working solely with induction heating technology a non-contact, fast and accurate heating method which saves manufacturers space, time and money. As its business has grown, IA has developed strong working relationships with Fortune 500 customers in the medical, aerospace and automotive industries; clients include GE, GM, Siemens, Lufthansa Technik, Taiwan Power, Boston Scientific, NASA, the US Army and Navy.
