Creating Center Of Excellence
New facility part of planned capacity expansion; centralizing teams for greater synergy
Universal Acoustic & Emission Technologies announced it will bring together engineers, designers, business staff and manufacturing specialists under one roof for its integrated Center of Excellence.
The company said the new Center will be housed within its Beloit, Wisconsin, U.S.A., production facility to bring those who work in the conceptual stages closer to the manufacturing team, resulting in improved communication, design, management of inventory and the monitoring of increased output demand.
The initial focus will be on optimizing emissions products for stationary engine applications, a rapidly growing segment of Universal AET's sales. In addition to engineers, the Center team will include design and drafting, process development, business development and raw materials coordination positions.
The Center of Excellence is a component of Universal AET's plan to expand its facility in the Beloit Ironworks complex, increasing capacity by 3716 m3 and adding up to 100 jobs in the coming year.
Universal AET provides engineered acoustic, emissions and filtration solutions for power generation, oil and gas, retrofit, turnkey and industrial processing markets, with a particular focus in air movement applications, diesel engines and gas turbine engine systems.
