Watch Us Grow – Announcing EFCO Finishing’s Expansion

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.

Continue to follow us for more updates as we progress throughout the year!

EFCO Finishing Pickup & Delivery Services

We have highlighted EFCO’s metal finishing services offered in past blog posts, but this post highlights the pickup and delivery services provided by EFCO Finishing.

As we concluded 2016, our company truck finally reached the end of its useful life, and was removed from the EFCO fleet. Wanting to maintain this valuable service to our customers, we had a choice to make: buy a new truck or enter into a full service lease. Partnering with our friends at Airoldi Brothers, we went the leasing route, bringing  a 2017 Hino 20’ box truck onto our staff. This allows us to focus on what we do best – metal finishing and let’s the experts manage the maintenance and well-being of the truck.

Having access to this truck earns EFCO a competitive advantage over other finishing companies. For example, we’re able to pickup and deliver parts more quickly, no longer reliant  on a common carrier. Also, we gain greater flexibility, allowing the EFCO logistics team to manage scheduling, rather than a third party who is not a strategic partner in the interaction. We’re able to adjust routes and schedules throughout the day, often helping our customers out of jams. By getting to know the needs and expectations of our customers, we can do our best to be there when they need us there. It makes us proud to have this ability to delight our customers and hopefully go above their expectations, and certainly above most the competition.

Serving southwest Wisconsin with a smile, our driver Jim is a valuable resource, getting to know all of our customers. Whether picking up the orders for vibratory finishing, ball burnishing, or blast, he hears firsthand what the requirements are, when parts are needed back on-site, and relays this information back to Jon in production. Our efficient, thorough, all-EFCO, start to finish process means a smoother, enhanced experience.  

Contact us today, or to schedule your next pickup, so we can prove to you we are “committed to the finish!”
