On June 26 Venture Products, Inc., manufacturer of the Ventrac compact tractor, broke ground for a new manufacturing facility. It’s located on a 21-acre in Orrville, Ohio.
“We are excited for this opportunity as we focus on the future and expand our capabilities and capacities to make this location the corporate/global headquarters for Ventrac,” said President and CEO Dallas Steiner.
Ventrac has experienced significant growth the past few years and find they are exceeding the capacities of their two current manufacturing facilities. The new 116,400 sq.-ft. facility will allow Ventrac to house all operations at one location.
The project will be completed in three phases, taking place over the course of three years. Phase one will house research and development, fabrication, welding, parts and warehouse departments. When completed, all operations, including corporate offices, assembly, paint, purchasing, marketing, and sales will be conducted under one roof.
“Our dealers and customers are very important to us and this new facility will allow Ventrac to better meet their needs.” Said Mark Steiner, Vice President and Facilities Manager. “The new expansion will allow Ventrac to grow its manufacturing capacities, add continued improvement to LEAN manufacturing principles and allow additional purchase of state of the art machinery.”
