CGR expands office space, adds new machinery

CGR Products recently expanded its office space and added new high-volume manufacturing machinery to support its ongoing growth.

CGR Products recently expanded its office space and added new high-volume manufacturing machinery to support its ongoing growth, which led to overcrowded facilities that hampered additional opportunities, the company said.

A 30,000-square-foot expansion increases CGR’s footprint by almost 50%, adding room for higher volumes of inventory, and easing crowded conditions in manufacturing and warehousing areas, CGR said.

CGR Products provides customized fabrication solutions for OEM markets, including the commercial vehicle and heavy equipment industries, in three locations: Greensboro NC, where it’s headquartered, Decatur AL and Waukesha WI.

The Greensboro location added a second Bruno wide-format die-cutting press, providing more capacity for large-volume orders. This new press has a cutting size of 84” x 75” and uses a power-driven belt to move material and parts along.

“This new press is ideal for large-volume customers or large surface area parts in the automotive, transportation, heavy equipment and filtration markets,” said Alan Johnson, sales manager at CGR Products.

Bruno presses are made in the USA and used by large manufacturing companies throughout the world, primarily in the automotive and gasket industries, CGR said. With two Bruno presses, CGR is well-positioned for truckload and trailer drop converting. These presses have dedicated loading docks for truckload in-out services.

The Decatur location added a new high-volume Delta Modtech rotary die cutting machine, which accommodates die-cut parts up to 13 inches wide. Individual servo controls at each die station allow for precision tolerances and independent speeds of each other to utilize maximum material savings.

Delta Modtech builds complex and tight-tolerance die-cutting machines with the highest quality materials, CGR said.

The new rotary system is designed for high-speed, cost-effective and precision-cut parts on high-volume orders. It is ideal for “kiss-cut” or “peel-and-stick” applications. Kiss cutting is performed by cutting through the part down to, but not through, the release liner. The parts are supplied on a roll or pad for easy “peel-and-stick” application.
