The construction has started! Our planned 14,000-square-foot expansion of the Cascade Dafo facility is now in full swing. Grading began in March and building construction started in May. Over the coming months, there will be a great deal of activity on the back half of the Cascade site as parking is extended, wetlands are enhanced and the new expanded building comes to life. The parking lot will be a pervious surface for natural drainage.
The new space is scheduled to be ready for occupancy sometime this fall and will allow the company to better organize all of the manufacturing and related operations. Our Fast FitTM group will have much-needed room to organize and create better process flow. Research and Development will gain square footage for their work. Finally, the DAFO production line will have the ability to expand in critical areas and create improved “value stream” related flow.
As an added feature, we are planning a walking trail around the perimeter of the property so that team members can enjoy a walk during lunch.
Stay tuned for future updates and look for a “grand opening” sometime in the late fall!
