Laszeray Technology Inc., a jack-of-all-trades design and manufacturing shop, is building a $2.8 million, 30,000-square-foot plant and headquarters in North Royalton, Ohio.
Among the firm's many capabilities is custom injection molding. Laszeray operates seven Battenfeld presses with clamping forces of 60-300 tons, and has two-shot molding capabilities.
The 25-employee firm is likely to move into its new digs in the summer, General Manager Steven Patton said in a Dec. 13 telephone interview. Groundbreaking is set for the first quarter of 2008.
The company will be moving out of a leased, 17,000-square-foot, five-unit space in North Royalton. The new site sits on nearly 4 acres and will provide Laszeray officials expansion opportunities in the future.
``This will allow us to accommodate more growth and do things more efficiently,'' Patton said. ``By consolidating our location from five units into one, it will allow us to accommodate a better work flow.''
Laszeray plans to install about $850,000 in new equipment for the building.
In addition to injection molding, Laszeray also is equipped for industrial design, rapid prototyping and machining, including mold making and refurbishing.
Both Patton and Laszeray owner Ray Seuffert are mold makers by trade.
The company uses three robots, and at the very least, sprue pickers on every machine, officials said.
