Emuge Corp. has recently broken ground to build a 22,000 square-foot expansion project that will double the size of its U.S. headquarters and manufacturing facility in West Boylston, Massachusetts. Marking a 35-year presence in the United States along with increased growth in North America, the Emuge expansion will include more manufacturing space and the addition of a PVD coating center. In addition, Emuge plans to expand its current Technology and Training Center, also located at the West Boylston facility.

“The expansion will allow us to better serve our customer base in the U.S. and Canada,” says Bob Hellinger, president. “The growth we have experienced in our aerospace and power generation customer base has been significant in the past few years. The expanded facility will provide additional capacity to manufacture special solid carbide tooling domestically and allow us to provide customized solutions within our milling portfolio.”

Construction for the expanded facility began in September 2018, with completion slated for the second quarter of 2019. 

Emuge currently has tool reconditioning capabilities in West Boylston for taps, end mills and drills, combined with the ability to manufacture tools such as spot drills and chamfer mills and to make other round tool modifications.
