Wauconda, Illinois – Maxcess, a global leader in innovative products and services for web handling applications, today announced the completion of Menges Roller Company’s multi-million-dollar expansion. The expansion doubles its manufacturing footprint while installing state-of-the-art new equipment.
“This expansion will allow us to expand our year-over-year growth, while keeping our high standing in the commercial manufacture of rollers and coverings for the converting, steel, packaging, plastics and other industrial uses of large rolls,” said Garrett Rausch, Director of Engineering and Manufacturing for Menges Roller.
The expansion of the plant doubles its manufacturing footprint and features a new state-of-the-art lathe, which enables the company to manufacture rolls up to 58 inches in diameter and 275 inches in length with live tooling and 3-axis machining capabilities.
