Denver, Colorado – Armstrong Steel Building Systems, a Colorado company, is delighted to announce the opening of its manufacturing facility located in the Denver suburb of Englewood, Colorado.
“Locating this facility in [metro] Denver was a no-brainer for us. Colorado is our home, it’s always been good to us, and if we can contribute to the economy by providing jobs and tax revenue, we’re going to do it,” said Ethan Chumley, founder and CEO of Armstrong Steel Buildings.
The plant will employ traditional manufacturing professionals who will be trained to work with state-of-the-art machinery. The company is no stranger to factory design and this facility is the next generation of manufacturing. Armstrong will offer training to Coloradans on new machines, with the latest advancements in technology, hoping to continue to do its part to keep Colorado ahead of the curve and on the cutting edge of job creation and manufacturing.
While the plant will be equipped with modern machinery, the structure isn’t modern. “It was a conscious decision to locate an existing building,” says Ethan. “This allowed us to resurrect an existing structure, providing minimal impact to the environment, and it enabled us to invest in technology and, more important, invest in people; the juxtaposition of old and new makes it a great place to come to work,” adding, “Armstrong has a tradition of making things happen quickly, without the corporate heel dragging or internal bureaucracy of many companies – it’s our agility that sets us apart.”
Redirecting the company’s production to Colorado will allow Armstrong to modify processes as well as establish greater control over the timeliness and quality of the end product – something the company considers absolutely important to its customers and essential to its continued success in the market.
Armstrong Steel’s website maintains an insistence on delivering a top quality product. Armstrong points out that the Colorado plant will mean the company can and will make consistent improvements, while retaining its competitive pricing and competitive advantages – even in the face of increasing steel prices.
“Armstrong Steel Buildings sells and designs buildings to agricultural, commercial, industrial, and residential customers throughout the nation,” says Chumley, “bringing this manufacturing facility online is the next logical step in our company’s evolution. It’s exciting to bring these skilled trade jobs back to Colorado – where they belong.”
