New facility featuring x-ray and metal detection inspection, shrink bundling and tap-tone
operational capacity expands FlexXray’s ability to deliver additional trusted inspection
services across North America.
AURORA, IL. –– FlexXray announces the opening of a cutting-edge, FDA-registered
inspection facility located at 1998 Melissa Lane #140, Aurora, IL 60506. Demand for
FlexXray’s unmatched services in the upper midwest region has rapidly increased and
grown beyond the capacity of FlexXray’s Elmhurst IL location which closed on May 18,
2020 when this new Aurora facility opened.
This brand new 48,000 square-foot facility, optimized to provide the safest, fastest and
most accurate inspection services to food manufacturers across North America, will
include x-ray inspection, metal detection, shrink bundling and tap-tone operation lines.
“Since last year when we expanded into Illinois, demand for our services has continued
to grow as food manufacturers throughout the US and Canada have realized a strong
return on investment. We are delighted to further serve the industry by executing this
next step in our growth plan. This new facility significantly increases our number of
temperature-controlled inspection lines, expands our workforce by creating jobs in the
region, and increases our overall inspection and storage capacity. This facility enables
us to immediately service our increased customer demand and positions us well to
serve them in the future as the need for our services continues to grow,” said FlexXray
CEO, Randy Jesberg.
At full capacity, this new facility will run 24 hours a day with three shifts and will inspect
10 or more truckloads of product each day. The facility’s expanded loading dock and
warehouse storage space enables customers to quickly and easily deliver loads for
future inspection and have drivers wait while inspection is conducted across multiple
inspection lines in FlexXray’s temperature-controlled inspection area.
“We designed and built this inspection facility with quality and food safety at the top of
the list in every aspect. Our customers place extreme confidence in us to protect their
brand reputations as an extension of their quality programs. We take that seriously and
are excited to showcase this new facility option to further deliver the results they have
grown to love and expect from FlexXray,” said FlexXray Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Customer Service, Chris Keith.
During these unprecedented times, FlexXray is dedicated to providing opportunities for
partners and employees, creating jobs and offering the best and fastest inspection
service possible to their customers. FlexXray is eager to invest in new employees and
improve food safety with this additional advanced food inspection facility, designed with
food safety in mind from start to finish.
