Shick Esteve expands stainless steel capabilities
05 April 2019
Shick Esteve, a company that focuses on ingredient handling solutions, has opened its new 108,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at 4323 Clary Blvd. in Kansas City, Missouri, which is just down the street from the company’s headquarters, 4346 Clary Blvd., Kansas City. This will expand the company’s capabilities for forming, rolling, laser cutting and welding fabricated parts.
Tim Cook, President and CEO of Shick Esteve, explains that this will give the company the capacity needed to meet increased customer demand, in a timely manner. “Additionally, with the new fabrication and machining equipment, we are positioned for higher quality manufacturing capabilities with stainless steel products.”
Now that the new site is operational, the company will capitalize on the opportunity to begin improvements to its main facility, including renovations to the test lab space, in order to improve on-site ingredient trial experiences.
According to Shick Esteve, expanding the test lab has been a long-time goal of the company and will allow for more ingredient trials, additional space for equipment, and the ability to offer a turnkey testing environment with the integration of the mixing and baking capabilities of its Linxis sister companies.
