Key Construction has been busy raising steel framing and siding for the new addition. It is beginning to look a lot like a building now!
Finally! We had enough consecutive dry weather that the construction crew could pour the concrete foundation/flooring. Once that has cured the appropriate amount of time, workers can begin putting up steel!
It seems that Mother Nature does not want the new building expansion to proceed! Frequent heavy rains have caused several delays in getting the foundation poured so work can continue on the rest of the structure. Time for some continuous sunshine!

Ground has now been broken on the 12,000 sq. ft. expansion to our main facility. Plans are to be moved into the new space in late fall 2016.
We have taken delivery of two new 90-ton, fully electric molding machines, as well as two of the three new robots that were ordered in March of this year.
We have finished the complete renovation of our plant employee restrooms and breakroom floor resurfacing. This addressed several needs to make our employee areas on par with the new equipment we continue to bring into the facility.
We have now added a fully electric, 110-ton molding machine with servo robotics to our clean room facility. This machine will be used for work that does not require full clean room level specifications, but needs to be in a more sanitary environment than we can maintain in the main facility. This addition brings the total machine count in this facility to 4: 3 in the class 10,000 clean room enclosure and one outside the enclosure.
The Infinity staff held a cookout for all employees. Food was grilled on second shift Thursday night; third shift early Friday morning and at noon for first shift Friday. We were also joined by all the Board Members as well as former Infinity CEO Robert Carpenter for the noon meal on Friday.
