MANUFACTURING AND DESIGN TECHNOLOGY, INC. HOLDS RIBBON CUTTING
CEREMONY FOR NEWLY EXPANDED FACILITY ON JUNE 22ND
CHESAPEAKE – Manufacturing and Design Technology (MDT), Inc., will celebrate its recent expansion by hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony today — Wednesday, June 22, 2016 @ 1:00 p.m. — at 1033 Cavalier Boulevard, Chesapeake, VA 23323.
Manufacturing and Design Technology Inc. designs and manufactures high precision parts, sub-assemblies, tooling and complete machines requiring a high level of engineering and manufacturing skills. Currently, MDT exports about 40% of its current production to Europe, Canada, South America and Asia. Demand for MDT services and products has increased over its 34 years in business. This expansion will accommodate their growing customer base.
MDT Inc. purchased their 9,000 sq. ft. facility in 2008 and recently completed a 12,000 sq. ft. addition, which encompasses state-of-the art building design features. The newly expanded facility offers much needed additional floor space for the assembly area. It will also allow MDT Inc. to invest in larger machines to increase their manufacturing capabilities. Currently, MDT Inc. has 25 employees and plans to add 10 new jobs in the near future.
MDT Inc. made it one of its missions to bring manufacturing back to the US. “We talk a lot about reshoring with our customers and it seems to have taken hold. Many of our customers are welcoming our efforts in this area and providing us with opportunities to demonstrate our ability to provide them high tech solutions at a competitive cost, with short lead times,” said Gary Marxrieser, President.
“Manufacturing and Design Technology, Inc.’s decision to expand in Chesapeake further anchors their growing operations here and adds to our substantial manufacturing base,” said Steven Wright, Director, City of Chesapeake, Department of Economic Development. “This announcement is a win-win for our businesses and community at-large.”
