Last week workers began moving the machines necessary for production into the latest expansion for Jupiter Group's Pensacola location.
The assembly hall is a 25,000 square foot facility built to increase the capacity for meeting the demands of the US market.
Jupiter Group has seen promising growth in the US market and as part of Jupiter Group’s global growth initiative decided to invest in this area among others. The hall was built with lean methodologies in mind to maximize efficiencies which will be key moving forward as Jupiter Group strives to drive down the cost of energy.
The existing manufacturing facility is staying in its current location adjacent to the new assembly hall and is now prepared for new orders.
With this addition Jupiter Group Pensacola is now occupying 100,000 square feet in Ellison Industrial Park on the east side of Pensacola. Aside from additional capacity Jupiter Group Pensacola has grown to add over 150 new jobs to the area.
The Grand Opening May 26 was attended by Jens Kristensen, the CEO of Jupiter Group.
With more than 20,000 Nacelle covers in the field, Jupiter Group has a long track record of consistently supplying quality composite products to the largest OEMS of the wind industry.
