The US plug-maker has acquired five acres of land in Titusville, Florida

Merritt Precisions has acquired five acres of land in Titusville, Florida, and will break ground later this summer on an expansion project that will double capacity of the specialty milling company.

Merritt Precision is part of Watershed Innovation, which was established by Correct Craft to focus on “identifying, researching, developing and integrating exponential technologies to benefit Correct Craft, its subsidiaries and the marine industry.” Merritt Precision specialises in large-format CNC machining, with an emphasis on creating complicated plugs for the marine, automotive and aerospace industries.

“This expansion really will allow Merritt Precision to move in a direction that enhances our existing product, bring new capabilities to the company, and reach more companies that want only the very best for their brands,” said Doug Keehn, Merritt Precision vice president/general manager.

Merritt Precision has developed a site plan that is nearly five times bigger than its current location to advance and complement its CNC robotic machining operation.

The project is expected to be completed in late 2020.
