Raydan eyes eastern expansion as new chassis modification facility nears completion

EDMONTON, Alta. — Raydan Manufacturing’s new 12,000 sq. ft. chassis modification facility near Edmonton is nearing completion, the company reports.

It is slated to be finished by early March.

“Over the past two years, we have seen a significant increase in the demand for tandemizations and modifications,” said Ray English, president and CEO of Raydan Manufacturing. “And we have an increasing number of orders coming into the system.”

English added: “The enthusiastic response we received to the Air Link suspension for tandem steer confirms the exciting new direction Raydan is taking. We were approached to tandemize and install the Air Link on a mixer that was displayed at Truxpo 2004. The Mack CV713 came with a Mack factory installed rear Air Link(TM) AL460 air ride walking beam suspension, which made this the first all air-equipped mixer, and sparked the interest of almost all major truck manufacturers.”

Raydan’s next step in its growth plan may involve moving into Eastern Canada. English said Raydan is looking to acquire or partner up with a facility in Ontario to establish market presence in the east.
