Union Process Expands Facility to Increase Services (6/19/07)

June 19, 2007

Union Process, Inc. has completed a 6000-square-foot expansion of its plant to accommodate the growth of its toll milling operation. “Over recent years, we have seen our growth in the service arena expanding at a rapid rate,” said Arno Szegvari, president. “Many of our customers are choosing to have us grind their material for them in our pilot plant rather than purchasing a machine right out of the gate. We have found that a good number of our customers ultimately purchase a mill from us once they see the desired result in our plant.”

Toll milling involves a manufacturer grinding material for the customer in the manufacturer’s plant, which may be the preference for a number of reasons. The customer may want to delay the cost of purchasing capital equipment, or they might simply not have the plant space to accommodate new equipment. Finally, the customer may have no interest in manufacturing and would prefer to rely on the milling expertise of Union Process to produce their material.
