In an attempt to keep up with the growing demand for the company’s line of automated washing and sanitizing equipment, Douglas Machines Corp. has recently completed the relocation of its manufacturing facilities to a new 68,000 square foot location in Clearwater, Fl. The move highlights a nearly two-year transformation that triples manufacturing, assembly, testing and shipping areas. The added space, combined with state of the art computer modeling technology and new metal fabricating equipment like Mazak Laser Cutters and Accurpress Press Brakes, allows the company to increase efficiencies while improving quality. According the David Ward, President, one of the greatest assets of the new facility is the addition of a dedicated wash test and research area to help our clients confirm cleaning effectiveness and throughput rates using different models. This will become more and more important as food companies continue to implement the guidelines outlined in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). For more information visit www.dougmac.com.
