TTX Undergoes Fourth Expansion in Three Years

Posted on Friday, August 1, 2014

Therma-Tron-X (TTX), a Sturgeon Bay, Wis.-based manufacturer that specializes in complete finishing systems for industrial customers, broke ground last fall on a 26,800-square-foot addition that now provides more inside storage for steel and other equipment for its large projects that can range from $1 million to $15 million. This is the fourth expansion in the last three years for the company that has added 50 jobs since 2012.

Brad Andreae, owner of TTX, says he never imagined the company’s growth when he first moved to Sturgeon Bay and was temporarily living out of a tent. But in the beginning, he says his family and his father, Otto Andreae, who founded the company with Rusty Sherman, had little time for anything but work.

“We were working 14 hours a day, seven days a week,” Andreae says.

The company invests in developing new products and builds all pieces that go into a system at the Sturgeon Bay facility.

“The addition will enable TTX to increase its manufacturing capacity as it continues to meet the needs of manufacturers and contract coaters and expand markets around the world,” says Andreae.
