Horton has announced it is moving the manufacturing of its electronic viscous fan products, which include the VMaster directly controlled and the Stratis viscous drive units, to its Britton, SD, facility. The line is currently produced in Germany. Horton said the change will allow it to provide quicker delivery of the products to customers.
To accommodate the move, Horton has added 7,000 sq ft for materials and 10,000 sq ft for finished goods to its Britton plant.
“The expansion of our Britton facility helps to ensure that Horton fan drives are available for fast delivery to OEM and aftermarket customers,” said Steve Wardleworth, vp of manufacturing.
“Buying products made in the United States is even more important than ever to many customers today,” he added. “In addition to supporting U.S. businesses, buying fan drives made in the United States removes the risk of pricing fluctuation related to currency exchange rate variations.”
