MGS Mfg. Group Inc. has merged its two equipment groups — MGS Automation and Universal Multishot Systems — under one roof in a 40,000-square-foot building at its headquarters in Germantown, Wis.
The two groups, which employ 30 people, are now called the MGS Equipment Group. The facility was fully operational Nov. 1. MGS plans additional improvements to the building in the near future.
The MGS Multishot business focuses on multi-shot injection units and components, for running rotating molds.
MGS Automation specializes in engineering, design, fabrication and assembly of equipment such as vision inspection systems, automated assembly, sensors to detect rejected assemblies, labeling, weigh scales to ensure proper assembly, and bad loading and sealing.
“The consolidation of these two groups makes logistical sense, since both disciplines design and build machinery,” said Shawn Krenke, vice president of the MGS Equipment Group. “Being able to share resources between both divisions will greatly benefit MGS as well as our customers.”
