Adept Corp. is in the process of adding two extrusion lines and along the way, also has been named by Central Penn Business Journal as one of its 50 fastest-growing companies.
The York firm ranked No. 33 on the list of companies contributing to the success of the central Pennsylvania region. The award is based on sales growth from 2004-06. Adept was No. 16 last year.
Adept extrudes profiles for window accessories and lawn and garden parts. Sales manager Richard Altland said the company grew 200 percent in the three-year period measured by the newspaper, and is set to grow 20 percent this year.
Two extrusion lines should be installed by November, bringing Adept's total to six. The additions will increase Adept's capacity 50 percent, to 9 million pounds for the year, according to Altland.
