Powder Technology, Inc. to Expand its Facility in Size and Capabilities
Arden Hills, MN – April 7, 2015 — Powder Technology, Inc. (PTI) is expanding its business by relocating to an 80,000 plus square foot facility. In addition to the current location, the new facility will also include a state-of-the-art high-volume mill, rail side loading and unloading and a new testing lab for trial runs.
“We are excited to be able to house more inventory for clients and take on their larger jobs,” says Jeff Barrows, Sales and Marketing Manager for PTI. “Now that we have more space, we can offer our customers new milling options as well.” The new facility will also house a 300 hp Air Swept Classifier Mill (ACM). “The amount of product we can run on this mill is impressive,” says Barrows.
The ACM will be located near the rail side docks in order to accommodate for the large amount of materials being delivered each day. “We will still run smaller campaigns, but we wanted to give our customers another option for their large capacity jobs.”
PTI is also responding to customer inquiries by adding a 15 hp testing mill where customers can be part of the testing process from a new customer lounge. “We have always had clients wanting to watch their product run as well as tour our facility. Because of confidentiality reasons we were unable to do this in the past, but now they will be able to watch their trial run and see how the process works.” Barrows added.
The expansion has been a long time in the making. “We have been planning this move for over five years,” says Barrows, “and we have spent a lot of time putting in place processes, policies, and procedures to ensure a smooth transition for our customers.”
The new building is located at 1300 Grey Fox Road, Arden Hills, MN 55112 and the move occurred on 31 March 2015. Phone numbers will remain the same at (952) 894-8737, Toll-free at (800) 718-8737 and fax (952) 894-0734. To view PTI’s website go to www.powdertechnologyinc.com.
