Tandemloc Starts 2016 With a Site Expansion

Posted on February 4, 2016

Tandemloc, manufacturer of custom lifting products, recently announced the expansion of their Havelock, NC facility. 

Increased product demand, a continued introduction of new products, and the need for a more efficient workflow design spurred Tandemloc company president, John DiMartino, to make the prudent decision to expand and enhance the company’s manufacturing footprint. The expansion pushed Tandemloc’s walls out to 103,000 sq. ft. and includes three additional 10-ton overhead bridge cranes.

When asked about Tandemloc’s continued growth over the last decade, John DiMartino smiles and says, “Its all very humbling - considering that Tandemloc operated out of my father’s [Mike DiMartino] basement just 32 years ago. I would never have imagined we would reach this size.” And while all Tandemloc employees are grateful for the extra elbowroom, none are quite as thrilled about the company’s growth as production manager, Curt Pope: “When Mike D [company founder] hired me, he mentioned that he wanted someone to help him build a shop. With that in mind I set my goal to help build the best shop we could…the latest expansion represents in some ways the fruition of that goal.”
