Pivot Point Incorporated, a manufacturer of non-threaded fastener solutions, has broken ground on a new 30,000-square-foot expansion to the manufacturing space at their Factory #2 in Hustisford, Wisconsin. Combined with the adjacent Factory #1, their total facilities will increase to nearly 100,000 square feet.
Bayland Buildings, Inc. of Green Bay, WI was selected as the design and build general contractor and has worked with Pivot Point for several months on design, engineering and layout.
Bayland will erect a steel frame and beam building that allows for a greater clear-span of the interior space, optimizing work and traffic flow for manufacturing.
“We’ve invested heavily in equipment, especially automation, so that we can have the best value proposition in quality, pricing and lead times,” said owner, Sol Leitzke. “This has resulted in steady growth, and we’re practically bursting at the seams. This factory expansion will allow us to continue to add equipment and continue to grow without constraint.”
Pivot Point’s products include clevis, cotter, locking, and quick-release pins and devices, as well as wire-rope lanyards. The company also offers several unique and highly popular proprietary items, such as the SLIC Pin — a pin and cotter all in one.
Pivot Point held a groundbreaking ceremony on September 9th to commemorate the expansion of the company’s facilities. The expansion is expected to be completed in summer of 2022.
