Matritech is a metal parts manufacturer that is known for its versatility. One reason for this is the company's focus on expanding its capabilities. Since its founding in 1989, Matritech has invested more than $15 million in fixed assets. The company has acquired a range of cutting-edge equipment, and today it can offer services including laser cutting, robotic welding, CNC machining and much more.
Investments in fixed assets
Matritech can provide CNC machining services using fast and efficient equipment. For example, to provide high-speed part production, Matritech purchased a horizontal machining centre with two pallet changers in 2015. The year before that, the company acquired a new vertical machining centre, the Mazak Vertical Traveling Column (VTC) 300C. This machine offers a powerful 40 Taper spindle, full traveling column and a long fixed table for handling extremely long and heavy workpieces. The machine also features fast traverse rates, which reduces non-cut times.
Matritech has also continually invested in expansions to its facility since it began in a 3,200-square-foot factory. The latest factory enlargement was carried out in 2011, when Matritech expanded its facility to a total of 85,000 square feet. The facility houses many different manufacturing processes under one roof, including everything from design to assembly, so customers get the benefits of dealing with a one-stop shop. This means purchasing, receiving and transportation are simplified.
These investments have had their desired effect, as Matritech's customers say its services are always improving.
For example, a representative from Bombardier praised Matritech's ”attention to detail, respect for deadlines, and approach and dedication to continuous improvement.”
