Jef-Scot Metal Industries Addition Project
In November 2015, Jef-Scot Metal Industries broke ground on a building addition of approximately 5,000 square feet. Construction of the building is expected to begin in mid January. When finished and in operation, Jef-Scot will have sand tank capacity to hold approximately 40,000 pounds of new sand for producing molds that can weigh as much as 4,000 pounds. The castings will have a gross pour weight up to about 400 pounds in aluminum. The new building addition will also house added machinery for sand preparation, mold handling, pouring, and casting finishing. Equipment will also be added in the existing heat treat department to handle the larger castings. Full operation should begin in the summer of 2016.
