June 22nd, 2010 by Editor

DAC Products announced a consolidation and considerable new investments into their Rural Hall, N.C., facility. The integration process is expected to be complete by the end of the third quarter of 2010. In conjunction with an immediate $250,000 to $300,000 outlay of equipment, DAC will be transferring 25 to30 new jobs to the plant.

“The expansion of our Rural Hall facility is an important part our continued progress,” says Tony Smith, DAC’s President. “It is the result of our long-term vision and is just the start of more to come.”

The company adds that it plans ongoing investments with intended expenditures of approximately $2,000,000 over the next three to five years. These investments will make for better control thus giving better service to customers and creating additional efficiencies and capacity through the use of automation and technology.

DAC’s East Bend, N.C., facility will be consolidated into the Rural Hall plant yielding savings on operating expenses and reducing the company’s environmental footprint, according to the company. Equipment such as compressors, dust collection systems and other infrastructure support equipment will be cut in half, gaining electrical power savings. The company also expects fuel savings from the reduction of goods and materials being transported between the two facilities.
