Ground Breaking Addition to Flow-Rite Controls

Center , MI - June 4, 2008

Just two and a half years after doubling in size and moving into a newly constructed building, Flow-Rite Controls is once again proving that manufacturing is still alive in
Michigan .  Today they broke ground on their newest addition which will nearly triple the size of their manufacturing facility and should be complete by the end of the year.

“Growth is not new to us.  We’ve been averaging 20% year over year growth since 2002” says company president Dan Campau.  “Growing at that rate isn’t always easy, but it sure is fun.  We’ve been able to add 10 full time production workers, 20 temporary production workers as well as 6 more to our engineering, and sales staff in recent months.”

Flow-Rite has shown that thinking globally, growing locally is not a thing of the past.  Last year was the first for a new sales office in
Australia and they have seen continual growth into
Japan ,
Canada , and
Europe as well as here in the states.  Flow-Rite has again made a commitment to grow the production of their products locally.  “Keeping the production in house allows us to keep tight reigns on the quality of our products as well as allowing us to react to customer needs quickly.  Since we produce everything in house we can keep inventory and associated costs low” says operation manager Mike Semm.

Early next year Flow-Rite will release three new products that have added to the need for the expansion.  Square footage is quickly becoming scarce in the current facility and is needed to house machinery that will produce the new products and for growth of the existing ones.  With the expansion of their building Flow-Rite is showing that their “Made in the
USA ” label is not just a logo but the way they will continue to do business.
