In a recent edition of The Business Journal’s “3 Minutes With” video series, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Mike Giambattista explains how Hynes’ new facility and ownership factor into the company’s growth plans. Efficiency Hynes’ new facility consolidates employees from 5 separate plants, allowing them to work as a team to better serve Hynes’ customers. Having the employees under one roof makes operations more efficient from front to back—extra material handling and shipping has been eliminated, and the workforce flow has been optimized for production. “We’ve streamlined the whole process to be more productive…which drives down overall costs,” explains Giambattista.
Expanded Capabilities The new facility creates 50,000 square feet of extra manufacturing space, which has allowed for the addition of a new roll form line. “It completely expands our capabilities for wider widths and deeper sections.”
Growth Opportunities With the transition of ownership to a private equity firm comes new avenues for growth. Extra resources allow for additional capacity and opportunities for expansion—both regionally and in other parts of the country—that will enable penetration into markets not currently served by Hynes. “We’re excited about where we’re at, where we’re headed,” concludes Giambattista.
