Forward Technology Announces Expansion at its Minnesota Headquarters

Forward Technology, a manufacturer of standard and custom plastic welding equipment and testing systems, has announced a major expansion at its Cokato, Minnesota, USA, headquarters site, which will enable the company to significantly expand penetration into growing markets. Forward Technology’s 10,000-sq-ft expansion includes 6500 sq ft of extra manufacturing space and 3,500 sq ft of new sales/office room.

Forward Technology, a company of the Crest Group, manufactures standard and customized plastic welding and testing systems specifically suited for thermoplastic parts for a broad range of applications in the automotive, medical, appliance, battery, filtration/fluid air, and consumer goods markets.

The new expansion, which was completed at the end of August, is part of a strategic effort to devote considerable new resources to help customers be more efficient and cut costs. Forward Technology plans to increase staffing for sales, marketing, and technology functions at its Cokato headquarters site and sales office in Detroit, according to Brian Kivisto, president of Forward Technology and executive vice president of the Crest Group.

A growing U.S. economy has led to increased demand for welding equipment for the plastics manufacturing industry in a range of markets. In particular, Forward Technology has seen strong growth in infrared welding equipment for the automotive and appliance markets to meet the demand of Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers.
