MISC UPDATES

+ No update from previous week.


COMPANY UPDATES

NEW FACILITY

+ See renders of the new building in our 5 Year Anniversary Blog!
+ If you haven't heard, we are in the process of designing a different kind of metal rectangle. A new building. We are bursting at the seams at our current location, so we are way overdue for more space to stretch out and makes things more efficient.  
+ We have purchased a 3 acre parcel of land and are preparing for construction of a custom-built 12,000~ sqft facility. 3 acres is more than we need at this moment, but it will allow us to expand if necessary without moving again. 
We closed on the construction loan for our new facility in February. Since then, we have been playing tag with the city and different changes that have to be made to the plans but are hopefully very close to breaking ground.


FUTURE PRODUCTS 

BAUER LITE 

We have also made a living document for the project that you can access. We try not to email about every single tiny update and wait until we have a batch of updates. However, on this new document, we will update as things happen. You can access the latest update from 7.13 and past updates on the side bar of the living document. Everything is in one place now.

7.13 UPDATE

HEAVY GRAIL PLATE TOOLING 

+ We are very excited to announce that we have officially completed the acquisition of the Heavy Grail plate tooling from Norbauer & Co.
