HorizonPSI acquires Kansa fabrication plant

HorizonPSI, an engineering and manufacturing company that designs innovative material handling and automated transfer solutions for food, pet food, plastics and chemical manufacturers, has acquired a fabrication facility in Parsons, Kansas.

The new facility increases production capabilities and reduces lead times as HorizonPSI continues to offset supply chain issues to better support clients. The fabrication facility in Parsons, Kansas, has doubled production potential while adding key equipment and processes to HorizonPSI’s manufacturing capabilities. This new facility is twice as large as the original in Lawrence helping to better keep up with increased customer demand. Along with the new square footage, HorizonPSI will be expanding its team at the new facility.

“Adding 50,000-square-foot production space is just the start, we have also acquired additional equipment to increase efficiencies,” said Wes Kuhl, president of HorizonPSI. “We are excited to be bringing these expanded capabilities to provide the best solutions for our customers every day.”

The Parsons facility brings additional equipment and processes including:

  • New Water Jet Capabilities: On-site water jets capable of cutting any material or thicknesses without creating dust helps shorten the supply chain while bringing more production control in-house.
  • Bridge Crane: A 7-½ ton bridge crane allows the production floor to handle larger items as well as making it easier to work on structures and supports, which we have previously outsourced.
  • Powder Coating Adds to Finishing Options: Recently, more companies specify powder coatings for a high-quality, durable finish. Used as both a protective and decorative finish, powder coatings are available in an almost limitless range of colors and textures.

HorizonPSI is excited to add these processes to its manufacturing capabilities. By controlling more of the supply chain, it can continue to focus on quality and customization to better help meet customer needs.
