Flux Power has moved to larger premises to accommodate rising demand for its lithium-ion batteries. The new 60,000 sqft. (5,600 sqm) facility features improvements to production lines, incorporating lean six-sigma philosophies. "A larger facility was needed to accommodate our three assembly lines and workstations, given our growth rate," says CEO Ron Dutt. "Our objective was that the new site needed to be large enough to handle USD100 million in sales in one location." Dutt tells Forkliftaction News the company needed enough offices to support the full scope of functions ranging from production to customer service, product support, sales, operations, finance, and accounting. What was needed, he says, was "a facility having the size and capability that could be attractive to customers, OEMs, and institutional investors visiting Flux Power". "What we are doing here - and what is vital to our continuing growth - is foundational building that doesn't just generate revenue quickly, but provides the capability to lead the transformational solution to the main points of the materials handling industry." The new facility has been "built for the future", with the ability to dramatically ramp up production levels to meet customer demand. Flux Power has seen substantial growth over the past several years and now manufactures a complete line of lithium-ion battery solutions for materials handling equipment.
