Mensor is operating from new facility

Mensor employees have moved to their long-awaited new 45,000 square foot facility which was built with a ten-year growth plan. Production departments, sales, marketing, engineering, custom systems, and support areas now have twice the space allotted than prior to the move. Planning for the new premises had started in 2012.

The old and new buildings in San Marcos in the US state of Texas stood side by side which shortened the transition time. All new furniture and work ben­ches allowed employees to move only what was needed. The 5S and lean proce­dures were continuing objectives while moving. Areas such as the stockroom began convert­ing items the week prior to the planned move. Some employ­ees worked over a weekend, and by doing so, the sales de­partment was never closed dur­ing regular business hours and production was back in busi­ness by mid week.
Plenty of natural light

The calibration laboratory is located in the centre of the build­ing. Low pressure and mass calibration work zones are on in­dependent slabs to protect them from outside vibrations inter­fering with calibrations being completed. Mass and tem­perature calibrations have been identified as areas for growth. Natural lighting is a large com­ponent of the new
facility. Floor to ceiling windows on two walls of the break room area is a bea­con for employees to gather for breaks and lunch. A workout area confirms Mensor’s com­mitment to employees’ health and well-being.

Tours were provided for the more than 100 guests attending the event. The entire team of Mensor greatly appreciate WIKA’s in­vest­ment in their company and their plan is to return that invest­ment many times over.
