Heat transfer specialist Stahls’ International is tripling the size of its manufacturing facilities in the US to keep up with increasing demand for its Hotronix heat presses.

It is in the final stages of expanding its state-of-the-art facility in Carmichaels in Pennsylvania with an additional 3,250 square metres (35,000 square feet) of manufacturing and finishing space.

This will bring its total manufacturing and warehouse space up to around 9,300 square metres (100,000 square feet) – three times the manufacturing capacity that the company had a year ago.

Dating back to 1932, Stahls’ International is based in St Clair Shores, north of Detroit, in Michigan and opened its first factory in Carmichaels in 1986 when it moved into manufacturing heat presses. It is part of GroupeStahl which also includes UK supplier Target Transfers.
