AC Laser would like to announce that we will be relocating to a new larger factory in the coming months.
The first thing to clear up is that the new factory involves a move of approximately 500m around the corner to 4 Macquarie Drive, Thomastown.
Unfortunately, the short distance of the move does not mean that the move takes any less time, so we are working tirelessly to plan every aspect of it to minimize the effect it has on our production and more importantly your delivery times.
With what we have at hand, we estimate that there will be a bout a 7 week period where we will have one of our two machines out of action. We will do our very best to provide you with updates and as much information as we can every few weeks to reduce the impact that this move may have on you as a customer.
At this early stage, we are aiming to begin the move in late July 2016 and as mentioned above the move will take approximately 7 weeks to complete.
Now that we have discussed the downside of the move, I would like to bring up all of the good points that this move brings. After being in the laser cutting industry for many years, we have the opportunity to to layout the new factory to our exact requirements. The increased size of the factory has allowed for the following 3 key improvements:
- Firstly, the addition of a large overhead crane which has already began construction.
- A large increase in racking and material stocking along with the ability to store oversized sheets.
- The most exiting improvement is the addition of a third Laser Cutting machine.
The new Fibre Laser machine, which we hope will be up and running early next year, has some very impressive technological improvements.
With each of these additions we aim to increase our production and decrease out turnaround times for all orders.
As mentioned, we understand that this move will reduce our job output for a short period and we greatly appreciate your patience and support over this time.
We will be in touch in the coming months with more information as exact dates are confirmed.
The Team at AC Laser
