Horn USA Inc. is moving to a new facility in Franklin, Tenn. during the third quarter of 2020. The new headquarters for North American operations is approximately 110,000 square feet (10,220 square meters) and is located 0.5 miles (0.8 km) from the company’s current location. “Not only are we able to stay in the same general location, but it also allows us to keep all of our employees and maintain two-day delivery by UPS Ground to more than 70 percent of our customers,” said Duane Drape, national Sales manager for Horn USA. “As we make the move to our new facility, we will continue to drive home the principles that have helped us prosper. First and foremost, we will serve the needs of our customers through top-notch training and support and the best quality products.”
With the implementation of the new production area and once it reaches full capacity, Horn USA will be able to roughly triple the number of precision cutting tools that it manufactures in Franklin. Future additions will allow for in-house coating as well as toolholder manufacturing. The new warehouse infrastructure will have the ability to immediately ramp up to 350 picked line items per hour (from the existing full capacity of 175). Even with 44,600 square feet (4,143 square meters) of production space, the facility holds an additional 27,000 square feet (2,508 square meters) for future growth in that area.
