We are pleased to announce significant progress for Select Tool de Mexico. We have recently expanded our plant bringing our total size to 30,000 square feet. We are now in process of commissioning a large capacity (3.0M X 2.0M X 1.5M) 5-axis CNC machine and have added crane lifting capacities of up to 20 Tons.
We are in process of expanding our main assembly operations with an 18,000 square foot addition. Along with the expansion we will add cranes and support equipment/machinery as well. This additional space will allow us the capacity and flexibility to handle more programs and larger projects. Completion is expected to be for September 2018.
Select Tool de Mexico has now been operational since April 2018. With a dedicated and talented core staff in place we are now in the process of hiring additional employees. Positive feedback and support from our Customers has been overwhelming. Based in Queretaro, this is a full service facility capable of handling all facets of our business locally in Mexico.
The Advanced Manufacturing Division, our newest manufacturing facility, was completed in March 2017, and is now home to our latest capital investments in machining technology. With this additional manufacturing space, we have not only increased our capacity to accommodate larger programs, we have also significantly augmented our machining capabilities. The Advanced Manufacturing Division serves all of our divisions, ensuring that all components and modules are built to our own exacting standards, and on time.
