Sakor Technologies moves to larger facility to facilitate growth

Dynamometer supplier Sakor Technologies is to move from its previous facility in Okemos, Michigan, USA, to a much larger site in Owosso, Michigan. The move will facilitate the company’s current and future growth following the high volume of success it has enjoyed in the last few years.

The new facility measures 1,858m2 and previously accommodated Baker College of Owosso’s Auto/Diesel Institute of Michigan, but will now house Sakor’s administrative, engineering and manufacturing operations.

Randal Beattie, Sakor president, said, “We’ve been growing for quite some time and, since our growth rate has been accelerating dramatically in recent years, we felt it was time to find a new facility that is better suited to both our current and future production 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. Taking over their facility, which was already set up in a way that is highly conductive to our company’s manufacturing needs, was truly an ideal solution.”

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