Metallurgical High Vacuum Corp. recently completed a 2,400-sq. ft. building project for its advanced engineering design center. It is equipped with the latest 3-D CAD systems to accommodate all vacuum pump and system engineering.
Started in 1981 by MHV president Geoff Humberstone, the company now offers vacuum pumps and process equipment from vacuum coating systems to chambers for thermal processing of metals. MHV also provides in-depth engineering, design, and services on a wide range of high-vacuum equipment, including remanufacturing of vacuum, booster, and diffusion pumps and blowers.
“We see a bright future in our business and are adding a new, world-class MAZAK computerized machining center that will more than double our present capacity,” says Humberstone.
The MHV plant now occupies a climate-controlled 16,000-sq. ft. machining, assembly and testing facility on a 17-acre site near Fennville, Michigan. The factory features an 80 x 200-ft open bay with a 30-ft ceiling height and 10-ton overhead crane with access to the entire building. A 30 x 60-ft warehouse building holds cores and fixtures.
