Sakor moves to larger facility to accommodate future growth

Dynamometer developer Sakor Technologies has moved from its previous facility in Okemos, Michigan, USA, to a much larger facility in Owosso, Michigan. The company has grown rapidly in the past few years and this new building will better support Sakor’s current and future growth.

The new facility, which will house the company’s administrative, engineering and manufacturing operations, formerly housed Baker College’s Auto/Diesel Institute of Michigan. As such, the building’s design and facilities are ideal for Sakor’s needs: it currently measures 20,000ft2, has ample high-voltage electrical power, and is laid out in a way that is well suited for Sakor’s manufacturing needs.

“We look forward to the opportunity to work with Baker College that the move to this new facility will allow, and hope that our proximity will foster a sustained, mutually beneficial relationship,” said Randal Beattie, president of Sakor. “Taking over their facility, which was already set up in way that is highly conducive to our company’s manufacturing needs, was truly an ideal solution.”

The new facility’s production bays are large enough to accommodate manufacturing more products at one time and manufacturing much larger, more sophisticated projects on-site than was previously possible.
