Metal Research Inc. Plans Expansion In Guntersville, AL
Long time Guntersville, Alabama manufacture Metal Research, Inc. will be undergoing a $2 million expansion in the Conners Island Business Park. Metal Research, Inc. was founded in 1964 in Guntersville, Alabama. The new expansion has come about because of the need for parts for the ever grown aerospace industry. The expansion will add high tech manufacturing equipment and added capacity to the company's existing operation.
“Our company was established as a precision machining business with a primary focus on aerospace,” Wolford said. “Today our growth continues to expand, especially with Boeing. While the technology has changed our consistent commitment to quality has been critical to success.”
The new facility will maintain 10,000 square feet of climate controlled manufacturing space for the machining operation and 3,500 square feet for support operations. Wolford said that the Conners Island facility will support Boeing’s new 737 MAX aircraft and deliveries are expected to begin in mid-2016.
