Leading flat-die and feedblock supplier Cloeren Incorporated recently broke ground on a multimillion-dollar expansion of its Orange, Texas, Plant 2 site that will add about 37,500 ft² to the facility. Target date for completion is the first quarter of next year.

When finished, the expansion will accommodate several new machine tools, including a new 10-meter, multi‐axis CNC mill. Says CEO Peter Cloeren (shown at the controls of an excavator), “While the industry trend may be to offshore, we believe we can compete efficiently and effectively by keeping our manufacturing consolidated at our home base in the U.S. We are in a custom business, and keeping our skilled manufacturing and design teams close together affords greater attention to detail and quality to ensure delivery of ‘as designed’ products.”
