Cavco Machine Tool Rebuilding News

Cavco’s new 19,600 sq. ft. facility is nearing completion, so crews have begun transferring machinery and equipment to the new location at 26 Still River Dr. in New Milford, CT. Since the new facility is in the same town, the phone and fax numbers will remain the same.

A condition of the sale of the old facility, was that Cavco could rent it back on a month to month basis, so the move wouldn’t have to be rushed. This will be a key factor in a smooth transition.
Moving without a production stoppage or slowdown is a top priority to ensure schedules for customer’s projects to remain on time. This takes careful logistical planning. “The idea of having part of your office staff three miles away is cumbersome but doable. All in all, moving will not be difficult, but timing will be crucial to keep work flowing smoothly” was the sentiment expressed by Cavco’s owner, Jim Cavorley. The new facility was designed specifically for rebuilding and retrofitting machine tools and production equipment so there won’t be time wasted looking for a place to put things

Some customers are taking delivery of their machine tools from the current location and delivering their next piece of machinery to be rebuilt to the new location. The delivery times for projects will remain the same.

. Staff are eager to move and look forward to their modern environment once the move is completed, but “Where did all this stuff come from?” is most often heard around Cavco’s shop these days.
