Leaders from Telsmith Inc., Astec Industries, and the city of Mequon, Wisc., broke ground Nov. 13 for construction of a 33,760 sq. ft. facility to handle worldwide parts distribution of Telsmith products. The new parts distribution center will be located adjacent to Telsmith’s existing manufacturing facilities in Mequon, 20 minutes north of downtown Milwaukee.

“The new parts distribution center will allow Telsmith to better support our customers throughout the world with improved stock levels, ensuring that the right parts are available to meet critical customer requirements,” said Matt Haven, managing director of Telsmith. “We have realized growth over the last several years, which is reflective of the dedication of our 321 employees. This parts distribution center will allow for expansion well into the future, while also providing the service and support that our customers have come to expect from Telsmith.”

Telsmith currently operates a 14,000 sq. ft. warehouse within its manufacturing facility. Plans are in place for expanding manufacturing operations into the existing warehouse space once the new Telsmith parts distribution center opens in the spring of 2013. In addition to expanding infrastructure in 2012, Telsmith has increased employment levels by 11 percent.
