Linak U.S. Inc., a manufacturer of electric linear actuation solutions, has completed an addition to its North and South American headquarters in Louisville, Ky. The company is a subsidiary of Denmark’s Linak A/S. The current expansion increases overall manufacturing capacity by 50%. Linak U.S. employs approximately 300 people in Louisville.
The new 75,000 sq. ft. building has provided Linak the ability to move its off-site distribution center back in-house, as well as accommodate several new production lines. “We have already started operating a new production line and should be fully operational by June of this year,” said Vice President Of Operations Jan Petersen. “Once this site is at full capacity we will continue developing our plan for a second phase of the expansion, where we will add an additional 70,000 square foot building.”
