Wire Belt Company of America, a fourth generation family-owned manufacturer of stainless steel wire belt conveying solutions, held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their latest expansion on Tuesday, November 12. The expansion is a step towards the company’s long-term goal of keeping manufacturing jobs in New Hampshire while securing future growth in the industry. The new addition adds close to 25% more floor space, which will be divided into both office and manufacturing space.
“We are proud to manufacture our belts right here in Londonderry,” said David Greer, CEO and President of Wire Belt. “We know that New Hampshire depends on the manufacturing industry and we couldn’t be more thrilled to use this new addition to contribute to our local economy.”
Along with the addition of much needed space, the new building was built with energy efficiency in mind. A few of the building’s modern features include energy efficient windows, LED lighting, and occupancy sensors. Furthermore, the addition’s expanded roof will allow for the future extension of their current solar energy system.
Wire Belt moved to their Londonderry location in 1989, after previously being in Winchester, MA for 24 years. Since they relocated, they have added two new product lines, Compact Grid and Versa-Link conveyor belts, as well as many new employees.
