Vulcan Engineering, Planet celebrate plant expansion.

An open house was held by Planet Corp in late October to celebrate the completion of its plant expansion in Sunfield, MI.

The addition nearly doubles the plant's facilities and capabilities. It also has allowed the engineering and administrative offices to move from Lansing, MI, to the expanded Sunfield site.

When Planet was acquired a year ago by Vulcan Engineering Co, Helena, AL, a decision was made to expand the manufacturing plant and relocate the engineering and administrative offices.

With the extra space, Planet has been able to add equipment so that it can increase its manufacturing and engineering capabilities to better serve its customers.

Planet Corp has been designing, manufacturing and installing heavy-duty material handling equipment for the foundry, steel and aluminum mills, and general manufacturing industries since 1946.

In addition to customers, open-house attendees included: U.S. Rep. Howard Wolpe; Michigan State Sen. John Schwartz; Michigan State Rep. Frank Fitzgerald; Larry Meyer, Michigan state commerce director; and local, county and city officials.

A Michigan state flag was presented to Vulcan president Phil Zettler and Richard Panfil, newly appointed vice president and general manager of the company. The flag now flies over the Sunfield facility.
