Leveltek Expanding Toll Processing Operations
Leveltek International will expand its toll processing facility in LaPorte, Ind. The operation will add 54,000 square feet of space at the site, bringing the facility to 135,000 square feet.
Leveltek is primarily making room to store more material, though it may add equipment down the road. “We needed the extra space. It was getting a little cumbersome to have to keep material off site,” says Mike Kelly, Leveltek president.
The LaPorte operation offers cut-to-length, slitting, blanking and stretch leveling. It is one of two toll processing facilities operated by the coil processing equipment manufacturer. The other is at its headquarters in Benwood, W.Va.
“We have our own technology in both places. When we’re selling our equipment, we get people to send us their metal and we demonstrate what we can do. And when we start up a new line, we send our crews. It makes for a very smooth transition,” Kelly says.
The company expects to complete the expansion by the end of the year.
