Last week, Taylor Devices opened a new manufacturing operation in the Buffalo Bolt Business Park in North Tonawanda, N.Y. Company President/CEO Doug Taylor and Mayor Robert G. Ortt attended a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Taylor Devices Inc. purchased three parcels of land from the city at the Buffalo Bolt Business Park in 2011 and has invested $3.3 million at the site for three buildings, which were connected to total 50,000 sq-ft. The facilities are third party certified to ISO 14001.
The three buildings on the site were rebuilt and re-purposed. The largest building, constructed in 1915, was the former shipping department of the Buffalo Bolt Co. The buildings have been extensively modified to allow for the installation of heave machines and their foundations, as well as for material handling via large overhead cranes.
“The Buffalo Bolt facilities are an addition to those at our Tonawanda Island site in North Tonawanda, and double our manufacturing space,” said Doug Taylor. “The overall result essentially recreates the south portion of the Buffalo Bolt site as it existed in the 1950s, and allows Taylor Devices sufficient space for both current manufacturing and future expansion.”
