To meet the growing demand for its products, Rakks is proud to announce the expansion of its Needham, MA headquarters. “We have increased our manufacturing space by almost 40% and made significant improvements to our factory layout,” says company President, David Greenberg. “The renovations have resulted in faster throughput, greater productivity and even better customer service”. The project, which began in the late fall of 2014 also increased the office and administration area by 15%, and created a new lunch/training room that can accommodate the entire Rakks team.
The building expansion included a ramp with a 16-foot wide door to facilitate the receiving of aluminum extrusions for Rakks ever-expanding product line. The “icing on the cake” is a new multi-directional Combi forklift that not only does the heavy lifting but also navigates narrow isles with ease. It is specifically designed to handle long length products – the perfect fit for Rakks.
“We see significant growth in the commercial and residential construction markets,” says David “we want to provide products at the rate the market is demanding. That is what this is all about.”
