SIGMA Equipment expands their shop and engineering services for upcoming year
(Evansville, IN) January 6, 2019 -- SIGMA Equipment, in Evansville, Indiana, announced today the expansion to their reconditioning shop and shop services.
The 10,000 square foot expansion includes multiple enhanced shop capabilities that will allow the SIGMA Equipment team to take on larger and more in-depth projects.
The new shop will include:
28 new power stations equipped to handle up to 100 amps of service, in addition to the 30 power stations currently housed. The new stations can accommodate larger and more power-consuming equipment such as ovens, bakery mixers and heat tunnels
The lathe, mill, and welders are also a new feature that give SIGMA the opportunity to build and manufacture their own parts as needed for the equipment and projects they are servicing.
Finally, the shop now boasts a new “SIGMA Red” epoxied floor that is not only a safety enhancement but will be used for additional branding and marketing efforts.
Owner, Rob Palmer, said “In my mind, the new build-out is a continuation of our commitment to provide world-class reconditioning services to our existing and future customers. We've built the largest reconditioning shop in North America committed to the processing and packaging industry. We now have space to power-up and retool up to 50 units simultaneously. It is a very exciting time for the SIGMA Team and we look forward to sharing our passion for machinery with our customers.”
SIGMA has doubled its number of engineering projects over the last few years. As the number of projects has increased, so have the needs for the shop.
“Our Shop Services division has grown exponentially over the last year. We are excited about all the opportunities the new expansion will bring, not just for SIGMA, but for the community as well.” Shop Supervisor, Jim Dougan said.
SIGMA Equipment will be expanding its offering of on-site technical start-up services to offer traveling service techs and integration services in addition to the currently offered power up videos and customized engineering projects.
Through the creation of this new shop, SIGMA Equipment will be looking to hire 3-4 new shop technicians in the immediate future, with room for growth in the future.
This expansion is one of many that SIGMA Equipment has been working on over the last 5 years. The most recent being the expansion of the Marketing and IT department’s workspace, completed in 2017.
