Conveyor systems company expands facility
A maker of custom conveyor systems for the manufacturing and food-processing industries has expanded its facility in the region.
Norton Shores-based Dynamic Conveyor Corporation recently completed a renovation and expansion at its facility at 5980 Grand Haven Rd. in Norton Shores.
The cost of the project was not disclosed.
The expansion added 1,600 square feet to the building, including 11 offices, a larger conference room and break room that expands for company-wide gatherings.
The facility was previously about 20,000 square feet, according to RealtyTrac, including its manufacturing space.
Jill Batka, owner and president of Dynamic Conveyor, said the extra space will allow the company to support the “steady growth” it has seen since 2011.
Dynamic Conveyor recently added two employees, an engineer and a sales team member, bringing its total workforce to 28 people.
Grand Haven-based Westwind Construction was the contractor on the project and also handled architecture and design services.
Founded in 1991, Dynamic Conveyor Corporation makes custom conveyor systems for various industries.
Its original DynaCon modular conveyor system was marketed to the plastic molding industry as a build-your-own conveyor option that is lightweight enough to be reconfigurable, while strong enough to last.
It introduced the DynaClean line of conveyors to food processors in 2011 as a “cost-saving alternative” to traditional stainless-steel conveyors. DynaClean’s patented design is “simple, quick and easy to disassemble and clean,” reducing risk of food-borne illness and cutting cleaning time “in half,” according to the company.
Dynamic Conveyor offers all its customers customized choices, including length, width, inclines, declines, lateral turns, belt styles and an array of accessory options. The systems are also designed to “require no maintenance, lubrication or need for belt tracking.”
