It is no longer a secret that after spending generations in Butler and elapsing a period of greater than 50 years at its current home, EFCO Finishing will be relocating to a newer, larger building in Menomonee Falls later this year. We plan to be up and running at the new location by September 1, 2017, but the high quality metal finishing services you’ve come to expect will see no interruption during the move.
Last summer, EFCO began the process of trying to find a new building and was very excited to conclude the process in February, after an exhaustive search. Wanting to stay in the same general area, we were thrilled to find the Fall’s property, along with the fact that it met our criteria: great freeway access, a vibrant business park, and a more traditional rectangular facility, allowing us to get everything under one roof with room to grow.
Located on Fountain Boulevard, just north of Main Street in the Falls directly across from Bradley Corporation, EFCO’s new building is just shy of 30,000 square feet. Add in the efficiencies gained, and EFCO will have a facility to serve our customers and grow with them over the next several years.
It is bittersweet for current owners, Terry Schultz and Mike Budgins, to relocate after so many years in Butler, with all the memories that exist. That said, they are also very excited for the opportunity in front of them and looking forward to putting their stamp on this next chapter of the EFCO legacy.
As mentioned earlier, the plan is to start the move as summer starts. Having ample time available allows us to organize the property better and plan the move strategically so we are never shut down. This way we can continue meeting all our customers’ needs and deadlines on a continuous basis, even during the transition. We plan to keep the core group of services in tact, which includes vibratory finishing, ball burnishing, and the wide range of blasting services such as blast cabinet blasting, table and tumble blasting using steel grit and steel shot, and large blast room for larger pieces and projects. Vapor degreasing and our timesaver machines will also be active at the new location.
