After acquiring many functioning facilities over the years in the Elkhart/Goshen area, the new Beamline Processing Facility was the first new construction project that the company has seen in the midwest in quite a while. Located on a ten-acre site within the Lippert Components manufacturing complex in Goshen, Indiana, the 107,000 square foot, multi-million dollar facility was created to enhance the manufacture of I-beams that form the framework of nearly every chassis it produces.
“This is a flexible production system that is able to take individual customer orders, match them to the specification required and produce the finished I-beam, ready to be built into a chassis,” explained Philip Wiltshire, Director of LCI’s Manufacturing Engineering.
