Australia-Based ANCA Expands Wixom, Michigan, Manufacturing Hub

ANCA, Inc, a machine tool builder and Australia-based designer and builder of advanced computer-controlled, high accuracy grinding machines, will expand its plant by 50% in Wixom, Michigan. The company will expand its inventory and spare parts warehouse capacity, adding a dedicated customer focus and training center, and doubling its machine demonstration area.

“This expansion represents ANCA’s commitment to the Americas markets and to servicing our customers promptly and fully,” Russell Riddiford, ANCA, Inc. president said.

ANCA signed an agreement with Schonsheck, Inc., also of Wixom, to be the contractor for the ANCA building expansion which will total 11,793 square feet. The addition will include an enhanced machine rebuild area and machine configuration area for preparing the machines for customer delivery. The expansion also adds to ANCA’s spindle rebuild area and electrical repair facility, permitting the company to respond quickly to customer needs. The expansion also includes a larger employee accommodation.

According to Mr. Riddiford, the expansion will allow ANCA to add employees to its warehouse, spindle rebuild, and machine configuration areas to provide faster customer service. Work is to begin October 2016 with completion of the expansion expected in Spring 2017.
