Cambridge Intl. Unifies Two Plants, Opens Innovation CenterJuly 1, 2016
Cambridge International, Cambridge, MD, a manufacturer of metal conveyor belts and architectural mesh, has unified two plants at its 237,000-sq.-ft. headquarters location and also opened a 7000-sq.-ft. innovation center at this location.
Following the 1998 merger of Cambridge Wire Cloth and Maryland Wire Belts, Cambridge International operated two separate facilities near one another, and over a recent six-month span, moved all conveyor-belt and wire-mesh manufacturing into its headquarters. The move included 65 employees and 37 pieces of equipment and is expected to greatly improve operations, enhance productivity and increase capacity to meet growing product demand, according to company officials.
Cambridge optimized the footprint of its main building to unite the workforce, leverage synergies and strengthen operations. Renovations included a new product-development area, manufacturing and process improvements, and numerous facility upgrades. Recent interior and lobby improvements include exhibits that trace Cambridge’s 105-year history and highlight the company’s mission, vision, values and people.
The new innovation center is a dedicated product development and testing lab that includes an engineering department and test conveyors to showcase innovation and improvements to visiting clients. Engraved plaques showcasing the company’s 38 active patents, and trademarks line the center’s walls.
