Haver Filling Systems, Inc. (HFS), a leading provider of bulk material packaging solutions and filling equipment, is expanding its Conyers, Ga. facility to increase production capacity.
HFS assembles German-engineered packaging and filling machines in the Conyers facility. The machines, which are used for dry bulk solid, liquid and pasty materials, include the Haver, Feige and Behn + Bates brands. The expansion will add 4,300 square feet to the existing 14,000-square-foot assembly warehouse, and HFS expects it to be completed by the end of 2013. The larger facility will help HFS handle increasing demand and accommodate assembly of additional product lines that HFS offers.
HFS Marketing Manager Gudrun Gibson says demand has been growing and the additional space also will increase the area available for test machines and lab analysis services. “This expansion allows us to improve our ability to offer the most technologically advanced filling equipment solutions and to ensure we continue to have the flexibility we need to be responsive to customers.”
The Haver Service Pad combines the machine’s PLC controller capabilities and weighing controls with mobile technology that provides the ability to monitor and analyze performance, order parts and video conference live with Haver service technicians.
