- 2018 has been quite the year at Anderson Shumaker!
In January, we completed a 26,000 square foot, 15 million dollar expansion. We added: 2 charging furnaces, 1 heat treating furnace, a 2500 ton hydraulic forging press, a 300 ton radial ring roller, 2 quench tanks, 3 overhead cranes, and a 10 ton mobile forging manipulator. Because of this, our production capabilities have vastly expanded, and we’ve earned exciting projects and new clients along the way.
Things took off again in June when Anderson Shumaker came under new management. The owners jumped right in, implementing many positive changes. We now have more specialty personnel, upgraded internal technology, and even added a second shift to meet the increased demands of our growing business. It seems like each week there’s another great idea in the works, all of which results in better service and superior products for our clients.
Additionally, Anderson Shumaker launched a newly refreshed website. We worked hard to improve our content and structure so you can find exactly what you need quickly and easily. As a result, we updated our graphics, uploaded more photos, and added new technology to make our site highly competitive. We increased our social media presence to highlight the latest Anderson Shumaker news and developments. My favorite part? This new blog, of course!
Closing out 2018, Anderson Shumaker is celebrating our fourth consecutive record-breaking year. We flew to Japan to explore aerospace advancements, subsequently gaining new ideas, contacts, and clients. And, we’re honored to be named as a major industry player by the recent Global Carbon Steel Forgings Industry 2018 Report.
As 2019 approaches, we anticipate celebrating many more milestone achievements. From the entire Anderson Shumaker team, best wishes for a happy, healthy, and rewarding 2019 and beyond!
