Aberdeen, North Carolina-based Meridian, a manufacturer of kiosks and digital signage and a developer of correlated software, announces the expansion of its fabrication and assembly facilities.
As a fully integrated manufacturer, Meridian designs, engineers, fabricates, assembles, deploys and supports self-service solutions from its 13-acre headquarters in North Carolina. The company says the 15,000-square-foot expansion will provide added space for the assembly and fabrication teams, three additional shipping docks and secure storage lockers. Meridian saw the need to expand in order to achieve economies of scale.
“As production output increases, costs per unit decrease, which allows (for) better materials cost management,” says senior project manager Amanda Jordan.
Meridian considered adding a building or renovating the oldest part of their facility, dating back to the early 1900’s, it says.
Instead, “We decided to renovate the existing space as it would connect to our sales and marketing team’s offices,” says founder and CEO, Chris Gilder. The renovation adds a 15,000-square-foot assembly space and provides fabrication with an additional 10,000 square feet to accommodate its expansion.
“This is an exciting time for Meridian and for our customers,” says Jordan. “The additional manufacturing lines allow for production planning flexibility, leading to better turnaround times for customer orders.”
