Boston Centerless announced today that it opened a second manufacturing plant in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Woburn, Massachusetts-based Boston Centerless said in a news release that the latest expansion for the supplier of precision ground bar materials for close tolerance CNC Swiss machining applications represents continued robust growth in key market segments in the Midwest and Western U.S.

The new facility substantially increases both manufacturing and distribution capacity, Boston Centerless said. It adds over 16,000 additional square feet and state-of-the-art equipment. The raw materials in stock at the new plant facilitates reduced lead times to customers in that part of the country, while precision grinding, straightening and bar end chamfering services are provided.

“Our Midwest and Western customers in the U.S. will now benefit from even shorter lead times,” Boston Centerless CCO Laurent Cros said in the release. “This investment in a substantial amount of increased capacity and an additional strategically located base of operations represents our commitment to continuously strengthening our supply chain services for our customers.”

The team at the Fort Wayne facility includes a plant manager and a full crew of certified grinder operators. The workforce was carefully trained by skilled personnel at Boston Centerless’ headquarters in Massachusetts to ensure its quality is maintained.

“No matter where we go or what we do, the quality of our materials and services is never compromised,” Boston Centerless COO David Mersereau said. “We knew with our expansion to the second facility that maintaining Boston Centerless’ impeccable quality was priority number one. That’s why we took the time to fully train our new operators to achieve Boston Centerless’ level of expertise before producing customer orders.”
