Fortress Interlocks Unveils New U.S. Facility
Ribbon cutting ceremony and tours celebrate new office for on-site training, demonstrations of safety access and control systems, some light manufacturing and assembly.
Fortress Interlocks (Erlanger, KY) dedicated its new Erlanger facility in February in a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. The new premises positions the UK-based safety products company for continued U.S. growth.
When it outgrew its current space, Fortress chose to stay in the same conveniently located Northern Kentucky city of Erlanger, upgrading to new facilities at 1455 Jamike Avenue, Suite 200. Now just five minutes from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, customers can easily visit for on-site training and demonstrations of the company’s safety access and control systems.
State-of-the-art conference facilities enable live conference calls with the Fortress UK manufacturing facility. With additional square footage and warehouse space, some light manufacturing will be possible locally to reduce lead times on common assemblies.
The office opening was commemorated with a visit from ambassadors of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Chamber members Steve Harrington of ProSource and Tammy Trimble of Zalla Companies joined Fortress employees Josie Dewald, Mark Gilvin and Mike Martin for a tour of the new space and ribbon cutting ceremony. Existing phone, fax and email contacts remain the same.
