Flambeau Boosts Manufacturing Capability in Madison

New Investment, Improved Systems Contribute

Flambeau Madison, Georgia Facility - New PressMadison, Georgia (May 1, 2021) – Surges in demand for plastic parts led Flambeau, Inc. to invest significantly in its Madison operations recently, including the addition of two new presses. These machines will be utilized to increase production of a variety of stock and custom products for Flambeau’s fluids and packaging divisions.

The addition represents a company-wide expansion of capabilities for Flambeau’s multiple manufacturing facilities across North America and the United Kingdom. A world-wide economic slowdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic was generally anticipated in the manufacturing industry, but for Flambeau it led to a rapidly increasing company-wide backlog of orders. Just months into the slowdown, Flambeau’s supply chain began to reach its limits, and demand for vital parts began to overwhelm supply.

A top manufacturer of plastic parts for automotive, consumer and industrial markets, Flambeau addressed the backlog by adding presses to its arsenal, as well as implementing several creative solutions. Here in Madison, the plant has embraced a revitalized production scheduling methodology, improving forecasting practices and addressing various constraints on production.

The Flambeau plant in Madison continues welcomes applications for employment, either in-person or online at flambeau.com/careers. The plant has long-term manufacturing jobs in assembly, packaging, and distribution operations and takes into account the family and personal needs of the workforce.

The facility is IATF and ISO-9001 Certified, with capabilities in high pressure injection and blow molding processes and presses ranging from 150 tons up to 730. Key customers of the Madison plant include John Deere, Caterpillar, Honda, JCB, Husqvarna, and Toro to name just a few.

Along with plans for expansion of the injection and blow molding on the Madison campus, Flambeau is currently implementing a modern, company-wide ERP system that will continually improve customer support and the company’s standing as a world-class supply chain system.

Flambeau, Inc., a Nordic Group company established in 1947, is a thermoplastics manufacturer headquartered in Baraboo, Wisconsin. With certified facilities and sales offices throughout the United States, Mexico, United Kingdom, and in China, Flambeau serves many retail and commercial markets, including contract manufacturing for key sectors of the automotive, industrial, medical, fluids, and packaging industries.
