August of 2014, ECO-FLO PRODUCTS broke ground to begin construction of its new office building, test lab and assembly stations. The expanding company’s office area will be 6,120 square feet and the test lab will be 1800 square feet for a combined total of 137,000 square feet. The expansion is necessary to help keep up with the rapidly growing business.
The office addition includes 18 offices and a large centralized conference and training room, each outfitted with state of the art equipment. The architecture features a “modern-rustic” exterior and entry by combining natural stone, timber and metal elements that carry through from the exterior in to the vaulted foyer / reception area.
The test lab will enable us to perform production and R&D testing. Production testing is important to ensure products consistently achieve published performance, so our customers can always be confident that our products will perform as expected. R&D testing allows us to evaluate new product and product improvement concepts. ECO-FLO strives to deliver products that are state-of-the-art in hydraulic design, efficiency, durability and craftsmanship. Having the ability to test products at our Ohio location will allow us to bring new products and product enhancements to market faster.
The test lab will feature a 17,000 gallon test pit, cycle testing pits, an overhead crane and modern controls. The assembly line will include a “U-Shape”, modular and expandable design featuring an efficient work flow, pneumatic torque-adjustable tools, and well lit work stations.
