CZM Foundation Equipment, a manufacturer of foundation, utility, piling and landfill drilling equipment, is now open in a new 48,000-square-foot headquarters in the Interstate Centre II industrial park in Ellabell.
CZM broke ground in September 2019 on the new facility that allows more room for the production of drilling rig machines and after sales inventory. “We are extremely excited to be open and producing machines from our new headquarters,” said Giuliano Clo, president of CZM U.S. “It is great to have so much space to expand our production capabilities, sales and personnel. We will be able to double our production output with the goal of reaching 100 machines per year within five years.”
The new factory is on 16 acres and has two main production bays, eight overhead cranes, four jib cranes and a 4,000-square-foot paint booth. New technology is included within the building for stock parts and engineering.
CZM anticipates increasing its workforce by 25 percent over the next two to three years with this expansion.
The previous factory, located in Pembroke, will now be the East Coast hub for after sales and service with five full-time employees. That location will be for service and repair of machines and kelly bars, according to Clo. “We will keep on expanding our product line to fit every need the American foundation market has, and with the added infrastructure, our service personnel will have even more resources to keep up with customer demands.
This facility shows our commitment to servicing the North American market,” said Clo.
Since 2012, CZM Foundation Equipment has operated in Pembroke in the Dixie Harn Industrial Park. They offer a line of machines engineered for a variety of foundation applications. CZM Foundation Equipment is the American division of CZM Corp., the leading foundation equipment manufacturer in South America, founded in Brazil in 1976.
