Due to increased market demand, Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based Lumsden Belting, a manufacturer of industrial conveyor belting for a wide variety of applications including food processing, heat treating, glass treating, printing, and canning, as well as aggregates, asphalt and mining, has added a new 23,000 sq. ft. facility to its headquarters complex. This has expanded production capacity and efficiency to speed delivery, as operations continue six days a week, 24 hours a day.
Lumsden’s fastest growing division, Wiremation Conveyor Belting, which manufacturers spiral woven conveyor belting, is moving into the new facility. This frees up space for its Flexx Flow division, which manufactures metal belts by forming wire into interlocking strands. Hoyt Wire Cloth, a manufacturer of aggregate screen media that operates under Lumsden but independently, will also expand production with the additional space.
According to Glenn Farrell, Lumsden Belting’s President, the added space, machinery, and capacity provided by the new facility will also spur the introduction of new conveyor belting products and options. These are currently being developed to further increase production reliability and longevity, while minimizing downtime for processors and manufacturers in various industries.
