Miura Manufacturing America marked its fifth anniversary at its manufacturing plant for modular on-demand steam solutions in Rockmart, Ga., with a special celebration and plant tour attended by government officials, guests and Miura executives and employees.
Miura opened its 100,000-ft2 Rockmart factory in May 2009 in a partnership with the Development Authority of Polk County, the Polk County Commission, the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and the City of Rockmart. Since it opened, Miura has manufactured more than 500 boilers in the facility.
“During these five years, we expanded business to Mexico and Brazil and managed to become profitable in four years out of a five-year plan,” said Miura Manufacturing President Mark Utzinger in a speech delivered at the celebration. “We build almost everything at our Rockmart plant, including all chemicals and ancillaries. We can now say we have Miura Pride, Made in the U.S.A.”
For 2013, according to the company, Miura’s total North American Operations sold $29,943,749 in products for a total profit of $1,346,511. The company’s once-through design uses less water and fuel than conventional boilers, and they can produce steam in five minutes or less.
