AUBURN, N.Y. — Auburn Vacuum Forming Co. Inc. is completing its third stage of plant renovation by revamping 16,000 square feet for more manufacturing space.

The Auburn thermoformer will move into the previously unused space in March.

``We're crowded, and at this point it's necessary to give us more room,'' said sales manager Ken Davis.

Originally, the 28-year-old firm expanded its tooling facility, and the rest of the plant felt the domino effect. In 1994, Auburn Vacuum Forming renovated 16,000 square feet for its molding operations. Two years later, employees moved into new office space. The firm is investing about $1 million for all the renovations.

The four-story building dates back to 1890 and all available space has been utilized.

Auburn Vacuum Forming has 40 employees and six thermoforming lines. The company serves the lawn and garden, recreational, electrical, automotive, industrial and appliance industries. For the year ended April 30, Auburn Vacuum Forming reported sales of $4 million.
