Sellick Equipment completes new manufacturing facility
Sellick Equipment recently cut the ribbon on a new $21 million manufacturing facility in Harrow, Ont. The new 126,000 square foot purpose built factory was designed for new product innovation, improvement to quality control and flexibility in product design. To ensure higher quality standards, all areas of the manufacturing process were upgraded, including a new machining centre consisting of CNC controlled laser cutting, milling, and turning machines; automated storage and retrieval systems for raw materials and aftermarket parts; and state of the art metal preparation and paint line were implemented to enhance product longevity, Sellick stated in a media release.
Nearing 50 years in business, Sellick Equipment produces a wide variety of rough terrain forklifts, each custom built to meet the customer’s application and supported by a dedicated dealer network throughout North America. “Our long term plan is to increase the business through new product,” said president Howard Sellick. “The sky is the limit on what we can produce in this new facility.” Sellick Equipment is a subsidiary of Avis Industrial Corporation of Upland, Ind.
