Armatherm and Armadillo NV are pleased to announce that as of November 1st, 2017 the companies have relocated. The nearly 8,000 square foot facility is located at 1 Titleist Drive, Acushnet, MA 02743. The building, is one of the former manufacturing facilities of the Titleist company where their famous golf balls were made.
The larger plant provides expanded manufacturing space which was required to accommodate the growth experienced over the past two years. “We are especially pleased with the fact that all of the energy we consume for our operations comes from the sun. The solar panel array on this building generates 7,000 KW per year. None of the energy we consume comes from the grid – we are using 100% sustainable energy.” Robert Haley, President of Armadillo says. “This dovetails nicely with the fact that the purpose of the Armatherm product line is to reduce heat loss in commercial buildings and reduce energy costs.”
The move will expand the manufacturing capabilities of both companies as well as support continued growth and product development.
To completely isolate the section of flooring for the new machine, an innovative noise and vibration solution was required. Armadillo installed Vibstop, a closed-cell medium density material specifically designed to have reliable vibration isolation qualities. A floor slab was cut out of the foundations and excavated to create a pit, the walls and base of which were then covered with Vibstop before the hole was filled with concrete.
Following an impressive and efficient installation process, the solution effectively isolated vibration. The floor section created for the new high-precision machinery is completely isolated and unaffected by other machines that create strong vibrations. The new piece of kit is able to work to the best of its ability with no disruptions thanks to the high-quality product used by Armadillo.
