Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas has broken ground on a new production facility in Houston, Texas, that will help the company meet the increasing demand for electric forklifts and warehouse products.

Logisnext says the new facility will support manufacturing of key electric warehouse products across the Jungheinrich, Cat, Mitsubishi and UniCarriers brands.

The new 73,000 sqft. (6782 sqm) facility will be a dedicated fabrication space for in-house welding and painting of masts and frames. 

It will also integrate cutting-edge technologies such as Mixed Model Line Design, Industry 4.0 process monitoring and one-piece flow. 

The expansion of robotic welding, along with the optimisation of paint capacity and weld fixtures, will contribute to Logisnext’s ongoing focus for improved efficiency.
Logisnext executive vice president of operations Jay Gusler says: “We’re committed to investing in our manufacturing capabilities and new product development to ensure we continue providing our customers with the most advanced, yet sustainable, electric products and solutions in the future.”

Construction of the new manufacturing facility is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.
