Graham-Field Bolsters U.S.-Based Manufacturing Capabilities

Graham-Field is investing in its American manufacturing facilities.

In a Sept. 12 news announcement, the mobility and DME manufacturer said it has made a “multi-million-dollar investment” in an advanced 3D fiber-optic laser tube-cutting system.

“This next-generation system will complement Graham-Field’s existing laser cutting equipment,” the announcement explained. “The new equipment will be operational by mid-2023 and will be able to function 24/7 in Graham-Field’s 156,000 square-foot Wisconsin steel fabrication facility.”

Kurt Hellman, Graham-Field’s Senior VP of Manufacturing, said in the announcement, “The high performance and flexibility to process round, square, rectangular and special-shaped tubing, plus angle iron, channel and flat bar steel, will allow us to manufacture a wide variety of components that make up several of our critical product lines.”

Tushar Desai, the manufacturer’s VP of Quality & Manufacturing, added, “The 3D-Tilt Cutting Head enables fast, accurate and repeatable cuts by utilizing a computer-guided graphical interface. This accuracy brings a new level of quality to our finished products. This level of quality is critical in healthcare-grade products.”

Ken Spett, Graham-Field’s President/CEO, noted that this latest investment underscores the company’s commitment to manufacturing domestically. “Graham-Field can manufacture quality, competitively priced healthcare equipment here in the United States,” he said. “We invest in our people, factories and cutting-edge manufacturing equipment so we can meet the increased demand for our healthcare products.”
