BOGOTA, NJ — Jesco Iron Craft Inc. (Jescraft), a material handling equipment manufacturer, has announced ithat t will open a new manufacturing facility in Oxford, CT, with an anticipated opening date of March 2020.

This expansion comes on the heels of strong growth for the company and is one of several new investments Jescraft has made in recent months. New equipment expenditures, a revamped online presence, and the implementation of new technologies at the corporate level signal strong business growth for the material handling equipment manufacturer.

The new facility is comprised of 28,000 square feet of plant and office space, with loading dock capabilities, oversized high-bay doors, 30-foot clear height warehouse and expanded coating system capabilities, along with several acres for future expansion.

While the new Oxford plant will be initially set up for assembly, it will eventually serve as a full-scale manufacturing and warehousing location.

“This new location allows us to better align our production with our customers’ demands in a rapidly changing e-commerce landscape,” says Jescraft president Michael Brown. “Through recent key investment and expansion projects, Jescraft can lead our segment in responsiveness, production and delivery by increasing stocked items and shortening lead times for non-stock items for our rapidly increasing customer base.”
