High Speed Gear® kicked off a second manufacturing shift at its Swansboro, N.C., headquarters on Sept. 8 to increase production and meet the growing demand for its American-made gear.
Within the facility, HSGI® increased its overall headcount, as well as continued to invest in equipment and new technology. The company is also working with multiple county officials to stand up another facility to further expand production.
“The High Speed Gear brand has grown substantially over the last six years and we have experienced a significantly higher level of demand since July of last year”, explained Bill Babboni, HSGI vice president of sales and operations. “Though we’ve increased our manpower and capabilities, we’ve also faced the same challenges this year as the rest of the industry, and we will continue to stride forward each day.”
