Schweiss Doors adds 20,000 square feet of factory space
Expansion necessitated by innovative products for different markets
FAIRFAX, Minn., June 2, 2015 – Schweiss Doors, a leading manufacturer and installer of liftstrap bifold doors, powerful one-piece hydraulic doors and unique designer doors, has built and opened a new state-of-the-art factory electrical facility.
“Recent growth in the door market due to our innovative electrical door engineering concepts and our growing roster of door products made this expansion necessary,” says Mike Schweiss, owner of Schweiss Doors. “This new building, 20,000 square feet, offers assembly space for our engineering purposes. Additionally, the electrical room is attached to our existing warehouse and manufacturing plant, effectively centralizing all the operations at the company headquarters under one roof for even greater efficiency.”
The steel framework of the new facility and layout utilizes the space’s close proximity to the sales and marketing teams. The new building has energy-saving in-floor heat, overhead cranes, a large 45 x 16 foot bifold entrance door, an 18 x 16 foot bifold door along with a 16 x 16 foot fast-opening hydraulic side door. Utilizing a five-overhead trolley system, it’s easier for employees to move hydraulic cylinders and new Red Power units throughout the electrical room.
The new building also has streamlined the process of delivering the recently introduced Schweiss liner/insulation packages. The clean looking, highly durable energy-saving liner/insulation package stops cold transfer because the panels mount on the exterior of the doorframe. Highly reflective, durable liner package panels install quickly and easily with no exposed fasteners. The panels are stain-resistant, low maintenance and easy to clean.
“This is the hottest insulation product on the market for large moving doors and is another exciting step in the growth of Schweiss Doors," says Schweiss. "We are committed to making Schweiss ‘brand name’ doors, the clear destination for customers to experience and get the best service and product in the industry and to continue having us looked upon as the industry ‘door leader.’ The new facility better reflects our unique capabilities and provides a perfect match to the high caliber of people who work here every day."
For 35 years, Schweiss Doors has specialized in innovative door design, engineering, project management and construction of hydraulic and bifold liftstrap doors, ranging in size from 6 feet wide to 140 feet wide and as tall as 60 feet. Doors are custom made to any size for any type of new or existing building for architects and builders determined to do amazing things with their buildings, including the doors. Schweiss also offers professional installation crews that travel throughout the country. For more information, call 507-426-8273 or visit www.bifold.com or www.hydraulicdoors.com.
