MD ELECTRONICS Corp. recently held a family day at its manufacturing plant, 33 Precision Way, Jamestown, to celebrate the completion of a $1.5 million renovation project.
The company had outgrown a previously occupied area and working in conjunction with the building owner, Heidenhain Corporation, renovated an unused portion of the building specifically for its own use. The project took more than eight months to complete and provides MD ELECTRONICS with a more efficient operation while allowing for anticipated growth.
"MD ELECTRONICS, Jamestown is a subsidiary of MD ELEKTRONIK, Waldkraiburg, Germany," said Bruce Dudgeon, MD ELECTRONICS president. "We are a custom manufacturer of automotive cable assemblies used in radio, navigation, telephone, and camera systems. We are especially proud of our employees who worked diligently during the construction process to ensure our customers would continue to receive high quality products on time. In a short 2 years, we have grown from four employees to over one hundred people and expanded from a 6,000 square foot facility to over 30,000 square feet. This expansion and renovation will enable MD to move forward, allowing for continued growth opportunities and increased efficiency and production. We used local contractors and materials whenever possible and everyone worked very well together to make the project a success."
Chris Anderson, MD ELECTRONICS supervisor, conducts a guided tour of the facilities during the recent family day.
Family Day activities included face painting, music, a catered luncheon, guided factory tours, and prize drawings. The event was well attended by MD employees and their families as well as contractors and Heidenhain employees.
