The Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based company says the extra space will allow for growth of the trailer harness assembly line, improved process flow and more finished product storage.

As a result of the facility and manufacturing improvements, Phillips Industries will produce and offer pre-made sealed wire harnesses for any application with short lead times.

"Significant focus has been in quality and delivery performance areas as well as applying lean manufacturing and operating principles," said Filiberto Coello, general manager of the electrical products division. "With more than 100 Kaizan events behind us, our customers have felt the positive impact and we need more room to keep up."

The company's trailer harnesses are built to protect against moisture, corrosion and failure. Molded material on all plugs adheres and bonds to cables, while molded connections keep moisture and contaminants from penetrating the electrical system.
