EDMONTON, Alta. — Raydan Manufacturing is continuing to grow and has recently purchased a new 10,000 sq. ft. building to house its parts supply and customer service center.
"This is the next stage in managing the growth of our individual divisions," said Ray English, president and CEO of Raydan Manufacturing. "Increased customer demand recently led to the building of a new 12,000 sq. ft. Chassis Modification Centre, and the growing popularity of the Air Link suspension system has increased demands on our manufacturing division, requiring further expansion and the purchase of this new facility."
The parts supply and customer service center will be home to certifications, repairs and service for Class 8 trucks and other heavy equipment from Alberta. Raydan has a licensing agreement with ArvinMeritor and is also authorized to distribute Mack parts. The new center is certified by the Department of National Defense for work on military vehicles.
"Five years ago we were operating from a 19,000 sq. ft. facility, and our annual revenue was $2.3 million. Since then, we have grown to 47,000 sq. ft, and expect revenues for 2005 to exceed $11 million," English added.
