Vortex Aquatic Structures International, a world leader in aquatic play solutions, has announced the expansion of its manufacturing facility and an investment in R&D.
The expansion will add almost 20, 000 square feet (44%) to Vortex ‘s manufacturing facility and includes a 2400-square-foot testing pool enabling the Montreal based company to enhance innovation and provide faster turn-around times.
Groundbreaking was held on September 25th, with plans to complete construction by early 2015.
Commenting on the announcement, Stephen Hamelin, president, Vortex International, said, “To take advantage of our global growth, we realized we needed further investment. Our goal for the expansion is to substantially increase our Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) to reduce order-to-delivery lead time while assuring the industry’s highest quality control standards.”
