Penner Manufacturing enjoying increased efficiency

Six months after consolidating its operations all under one roof, Penner Manufacturing is realizing its new goal -- efficiency.
Ever since creating the company in 1998, founder Lee Penner said the process of assembling, storing and shipping its high-end bathing systems has involved two facilities on either side of Grant Street in the Aurora Industrial Park. That all changed with an expansion/consolidation project which Penner said was long overdue.
“The efficiency is so much better,” he reported. “We were having to move too much across the street back and forth. This made us more efficient for shipping and for the offices because everybody is here.”
A project initiated in October of 2014 was completed last May, though Penner said some interior decorating and exterior landscaping work still remains to be done. All of the operations are now located on the west side of Grant Street in a facility that covers 28,000 sq. ft. under roof.
