DFT® Expansion Features Added Warehouse Space and State-of-the-art Training Facility
Good things are happening at DFT! We have just completed a 10,800 square foot expansion to our Headquarters located in Exton, Pennsylvania. The expansion includes additional warehouse space to support new machinery, inventory equipment, and an on-site training facility.
The facility expansion consists of major inventory enhancements, which includes a Vertical Storage Retrieval System (VSRS), an automated system to facilitate the storage, protection, and retrieval of stock. The VSRS stands 18 feet high and its innovative vertical design allows for 1,224 square feet of storage space, while taking up only 155 square feet of floor space.
Additional machinery includes two vertical Doosan turning centers, which will enable more in-house production with decreased turnaround time. Two five-ton overhead crane systems will assist in maneuvering products throughout the warehouse and expedite order fill rate.
The new state-of-the-art training facilities will enable DFT to host large groups for check valve and control valve product training. These training sessions are held twice a year and are open to both distributors and end users. Customers can enroll in one of these hands-on training sessions by contacting a DFT® Regional Sales Manager.
DFT’s warehouse expansion is an exciting step in our continuous journey to improve your customer experience. The added capacity for manufacturing, inventory, and training will help us to improve production and supply chain capabilities, as well customer service and satisfaction.
