Harold Beck & Sons Inc., manufacturer of BECK electric actuators for industrial control valves and dampers has completed a 24,000-square-foot expansion to its Newtown, Pennsylvania facility.

The new expansion increases the company’s manufacturing floor by 55%, including a fully-equipped training facility, semi-automated storage system, state-of-the-art ESD room and lays the foundation for additional machining centers and robotics.

 
 
President and CEO Doug Beck said that his “primary objective for the expansion was to leverage BECK’s craftsman tradition with modern factory automation and lean processes to produce unparalleled quality, and value for the customer”.
