JACKSON SPRING EXPANDS ITS MANUFACTURING FACILITY AND
BECOMES TS CERTIFIED AS IT COMPLETES ACQUISITION OF
SENTRY SPRING & MFG. CORP.
(July 2017, Elk Grove Village, IL) – Jackson Spring Mfg. Co., Inc., a leading supplier of precision manufactured spring and wire products, is expanding its manufacturing facility as it completes the acquisition of Sentry Spring & Mfg. Corp.
Rob Meyers, Vice President and General Manager of Jackson Spring, said, “We have had a lot of exciting growth at Jackson Spring recently. We have completed the Sentry Spring acquisition and are now nearing the completion of our expanded manufacturing facility. This was our second acquisition in four years, with Allied Spring being acquired previously.
“The last four years have brought multiple acquisitions, great new technology, and additional equipment, causing us to rapidly outgrow our existing home. With all of these changes, it was critical for us to increase our manufacturing footprint,” Meyers added. “While we are remaining in the same location, we were able to expand our existing space with the purchase of the building next door. We have connected the two buildings to add 12,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing giving us additional space for future growth. Construction will be complete by the end of July. While we have added two set-up people in the past 12 months, we are still looking to add more employees in our wire forming area of the business.”
Meyers added, “I am also happy to share that Jackson Spring received its TS 16949 certificate this past April. While Jackson Spring is ISO 90002 certified, we felt this was the next step for our company. It will allow us to grow in the automotive markets.”
