The first step towards an expansion of KAMAX L.P. has been taken. Recently, KAMAX held the groundbreaking ceremony for a 130,000 square foot addition to the manufacturing and heat treatment buildings. Chief Market Officer Dr. Wolfgang Scheiding and Ashi Uppal, President of KAMAX L.P., took the first cut of the spade. As the Operation in Lapeer is growing in the future, this addition only represents one of several phases of the expansion. Further development is planned to include a new wire processing facility as well as a new administration building.
Furthermore this growth will also lead to an extension of the road system. The executive management team of KAMAX L.P. stated: “We are encouraged to see the support of both the local and state agencies to develop the infrastructure within Lapeer County.” The KAMAX facility will then be directly linked to the Interstate 69. This will improve the traffic efficiencies for the KAMAX customer base and will relieve some of the traffic congestion within the city limits. “KAMAX is making a tremendous economic impact on the Lapeer County with this expansion project”, determined Patricia Lucas, Executive Director of the Lapeer Development Corporation.
