Cemen Tech is transferring Elkin Hi-Tech volumetric mixer line production to its Iowa flagship facility near Des Moines, and planning a customer support center in eastern Pennsylvania for namesake, Elkin and International Mobile Mixer brands.

Production of the Elkin Hi-Tech line of mobile concrete mixers will begin transitioning from an Indiana, Pa., plant to the Iowa operation in October. “This enables us to better respond to customer demand for the Elkin Hi-Tech product line while leveraging manufacturing and engineering synergies with our line of Cemen Tech products,” says CEO Chris Wignall. “It also enables us to take advantage of the progress we are making as we work to become a lean enterprise. This is a positive move for customers and Cemen Tech.”

The Pennsylvania support center positions Cemen Tech to provide fast, quality service from qualified technicians who have extensive knowledge and experience in construction, maintenance, repair and mixing applications of Elkin products, he adds, while demonstrating commitment to a strong, eastern U.S. customer base.  Cemen Tech acquired Elkin Hi-Tech and its product lines in 2007; both are wholly owned subsidiaries of Multi-Tech, Inc.
