Whiting Systems opened a new welding facility that will allow manufacturing processes to be faster for customers, the company announced last month.
The Alexander, Ark.-based company provides cleaning solutions, cleaning equipment and disinfectants in the transportation industry. The company said its new 12,500-square-foot welding facility is located on its corporate campus in Bryant, Ark.
“We are proud of this addition to our campus, not only for our great employees but for our partners as well,” Whiting Systems President Russ Whiting said in a statement. “In a welding shop as large and productive as ours, welding fumes or smoke are monitored so they don’t become a health concern. Employee health and safety was our first and main concern when we started to design and build the new welding facility.”

Whiting says its new welding shop boasts a new CNC-controlled automation plas max cutting unit. This unit features high-definition cutting and is capable of cutting critically accurate parts up to 4 inches thick. Whiting Systems also added environmentally controlled office space to secure the safety and long service life of the complex computer systems required to operate this equipment. The facility will also include 5,000 square feet of dry material storage.
“We installed a healthy air purification system into the building, and it is being controlled and monitored by a PLC (programmable logic controller) via smoke detection sensors,” Whiting said.
