As many of you know our original building, which we had occupied since our company started in 1980, was totally destroyed by a fire in July 2011. We bought a new building very close to our old location and were back in operation within a couple of months, although in somewhat temporary conditions. There was another company already leasing the remaining 40% of the our new building and they did not move out until the end of 2012. In January 2013 we started a major renovation of the remainder of the new building which will ultimately house our calibration lab, cleaning and disassembly room, spare parts storage, and shipping/receiving. The renovations include new walls, ceilings, lighting, flooring, windows, doors, HVAC systems with electronic filtering and UV light treatment systems, and a new gas piping and distribution system including a new outside bulk gas storage facility. We even put in a new high efficiency, ultra quiet bathroom exhaust fan which addresses one of our most critical gas distribution problems.
Shipping/receiving moved into their new location on 3/5/13 and work continues to complete the new lab areas within the next month or so. In the meantime we are still operating from our temporary facilities and we expect there will no disruption to our customer service during the move into the new facilities scheduled for late April. When all production areas have moved into their new facility we plan to renovate the remaining portion of the building which will house our warehouse, employee services and administrative offices, as well as a new customer entrance foyer with a conference room, a fancy sofa, recliner chair, big screen TV, and a candy dish filled with M&M’s.
