Obijbway Enclosures Completes Its Move

Company moves into Universal AET's Beloit facility


Published:

Ojibway Enclosures has completed the move from its former Janesville, Wisconsin production facilities and offices into Universal Acoustic & Emission Technologies' Center of Excellence on the Ironworks campus in Beloit, Wisconsin.

Ojibway was acquired by Universal AET in July 2013. The company designs and manufactures sound-attenuating enclosure systems, provides generator set packaging services for the standby power generation industry, and performs laser cutting, welding and forming of metal products.

Universal AET is a global designer and manufacturer of engineered acoustic and emissions solutions for the power generation, gas turbine, oil and gas, rail, engine and emissions, and industrial processing markets.

The move brings operations into a more efficient configuration and provides more lifting capacity with higher-tonnage cranes and higher hook heights, allowing production and movement of larger products. New equipment includes a blast and paint booth; a roll former; a shear, high-definition plasma cutter for thicker steel; precision weld and fixture tables; and improved welding capabilities.

Universal AET occupies 347,779 cu.ft. (9848 m3) in the Center of Excellence and has an additional 219,834 cu.ft. (6225 m3) in reserve for potential expansion of the company’s engineering, manufacturing and distribution capabilities.
