SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 31, 2013) - Sun Hydraulics Corporation (
"We are very happy to begin moving into our third facility in the Sarasota area," said Allen Carlson, Sun Hydraulics' president and CEO. "This will help us to better co-ordinate our product and shipping environment and improve our expedite capability, while ensuring we maintain our industry best delivery reliability. We will be able to reconfigure our operations and consolidate certain aspects of the business that will make us more productive."
Sun's Kansas operation was opened in 2003 to produce short lead-time ductile iron and larger aluminum manifolds used in integrated packages. This facility quickly filled to capacity and since 2003 has expanded twice. By relocating production equipment and some personnel from Kansas to Florida, Sun is able to consolidate its U.S. integrated package design, manufacturing and assembly operations under one roof, expanding capacity and shortening the supply chain.
Sun Hydraulics Corporation is a leading designer and manufacturer of high performance screw-in hydraulic cartridge valves and manifolds for worldwide industrial and mobile markets. For more information about Sun, please visit our website at www.sunhydraulics.com.
