Argo Baseboard will move its manufacturing facility in South Windsor, Conn., to Westfield, Mass. The Westfield facility is currently home to a large manufacturer of finned-tube radiation, capable of producing more than 160,000 feet of finned-tube radiation per week.
The transition will provide higher
production capacities and streamlined fabrication processes, says the company,
while allowing it to continuing to manufacture high-quality products with substantially
improved lead times. The transition and relocation will be completed by Aug.
Additionally, Argo introduces three new
models of baseboard: Low Trim II, Panel Trim II, and the “Classic”. These new models will replace traditional
Argo products and become the standard.
According to the
company, these new style baseboards are symmetrically styled for a modern,
low-profile appearance for fast, low-cost installations, improved fit and
finish and peak hydronic heating performance. All boards also use a mechanical
bonding process during manufacturing that expands the copper tube to secure the
fins ensuring years of trouble-free service.
