Berlon Industries Boosts Capacity with New Location
Manufacturer of Skid Steer/Loader Buckets and Attachments
Investing in New Equipment and Technology at Consolidated Site
September 1, 2015 – Berlon Industries, a manufacturer of skid steer and loader buckets and attachments for agricultural, construction, snow removal, and commercial landscaping applications, has combined operations into an 87,000-square-foot building it recently acquired in Hustisford, Wis.
"The new facility, at 331 Riverview Drive, is more than twice the space that we had before, which will allow us to combine two of our former plants into a single, more efficient operation," said Mike Ebben, company president. "We've grown considerably during the last few years, and this investment is an important part of our strategic plan for the future. Needless to say, all of us are excited about the new facility and work environment. We are also pleased that we were able to remain in the Hustisford community."
As part of the building acquisition, the company is not only investing in building improvements, but also new equipment and technology.
The company sells its Berlon Strong buckets and attachments via dealers throughout the Midwest and nationwide via online retailers.
