KIMTEK Expands into Second Facility
Increases production and office space, increases R&D capabilities
Orleans, VT —Kimball Johnson, founder and president of KIMTEK Corporation, has announced the purchase of a second facility in Orleans, Vermont where production of the company's full line of MEDLITE® and FIRELITE® transport skid units will continue and expand. Custom designed for ATV, UTV, and pick-up trucks, KIMTEK's slide-in medical, fire and rescue skid units are sold worldwide.
With the addition of the new facility, it triples the amount of space now available for company operations, from what was the original facility in Westmore. The Westmore facility will continue to house office and warehouse space as well as free up additional room to expand the company's new product design and engineering pursuits. The holder of several US patents and retired Westmore Fire Chief, Mr. Johnson says he is pleased the increased space affords KIMTEK greater opportunity to create new designs; specifically prototypes targeting off-road transport needs within the international medical and fire and rescue communities. KIMTEK office headquarters have been relocated to the new Orleans facility.
KIMTEK moved into the new facility, located at 326 Industrial Park Lane, in May of this year. Mr. Johnson stated that an official facility opening and ribbon cutting event was held September 25, 2015 with several dignitaries in attendance including several state dignitaries, many vendor representatives and most notably Paul Darley, CEO and President of W.S. Darley.
