MWW Automotive Expands Production Capacity
HOWELL, MI--June 27, 2011 -- MWW Automotive Group (OTCQB: MWWC), a global design, engineering, and manufacturing firm serving some of the world's leading automotive manufacturers, announced today that it has begun the process of expanding its production and assembly facility in Baroda, to further increase its production capacity.
Based on the rapidly increasing demand for its products and services, the large number of new and upcoming projects and the nature of the industrial projects currently in the last stages of negotiation, MWW is in the process of adding a third complete production line, to its already existing two production lines, increasing the capacity to three complete "Class A" prep, paint and assembly lines. MWW has also increased the length of the two already existing paint lines adding an oversized paint booth and established additional oven capacity for increased production throughput and the processing of oversized components.
To accommodate this increased production capacity, the Company has also placed into operation two new pro mix paint systems for greater color consistency, installed new computerized color matching system and will be launching a second production shift to increase capacity. To stay on the leading edge of production technology and accommodate new customers and processes, the Company has added Waterborne Paint Processing. This new paint system will allow MWW to add products, which require this kind of environmentally friendly paint and processing, to MWW's product portfolio.
"The increasing number of programs that have been awarded to us along with those still in negotiation for production to begin in the near and midterm future, have made this step necessary," states Chuck Pinkerton, the CEO of MWW Automotive. "Fortunately we have been preparing for this expansion for some time and have secured the necessary resources, such as the required equipment and skilled personnel far in advance. Accordingly, we are able to get this rather large expansion project up and running without having to spend significant resources and are able to commence production with a 2nd and if necessary 3rd production shift on a second production line quickly and when needed."
Chuck Pinkerton states further: "We have expedited this expansion in light of our advanced negotiations with our new industrial clients, whose products will not only require oversized production lines, but also a large percentage of our production capacity. We expect to finalize the negotiations and begin with the start-up procedures soon. We will make another announcement about the substantial size of these new projects as soon as we commence with production."
