We were so excited to have our official groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday August 30th! We were joined by our employees, city officials and leaders, media, family, & friends! What a great day it was to move forward with our 100,000 Sq Ft manufacturing facility. We should be moving into the facility in July of 2024! Thank you everyone for your support. We are thrilled to grow our Bonnell family and with the City of Dixon!
Bonnell Industries continues to strive to become a World Class provider for their customers.
A substantial expansion is necessary for both the manufacturing segment and the Truck Equipment segment to meet the future customer expectations.
This expansion will involve increasing our current manufacturing floor space by 300% to establish a new 100,000 ft2 manufacturing facility located at 325 Progress Drive Dixon, IL 61021.
The additional space will enable us to make a significant investment in new automated equipment, resulting in a substantial reduction in waste within our operations and an increase in overall efficiencies. By reconfiguring the layout of our production assembly lines, we will be able to convert 18,000 indirect labor hours into direct labor hours, thereby increasing our productivity and output.
Upon completion of this relocation, we will also be able to transfer our current Truck Equipment installation facility into our current manufacturing facility. This move will provide us with a 400% increase in available production space for our Truck Equipment division.
At Bonnell Industries INC, our owner, Joe Bonnell, represents the third generation of ownership. He possesses a visionary mindset, recognizing the imperative for a strategic growth initiative within our organization. He is now poised to orchestrate and execute a substantial expansion and investment in both the manufacturing and truck upfit segments of our business.
We believe that our corporate infrastructure is well-established, enabling us to aggressively enhance sales and service for both our existing and prospective customers.
