ARaymond recently announced a $12 million commitment to improvements at its facility in Logansport, Indiana.

“The IMA Hall of Fame Inductions are held to celebrate and recognize the positive achievements made by Indiana manufacturing companies, and to honor their contributions in furthering manufacturing in Indiana,” said IMA President and CEO Brian Burton. “Additionally, these inductions serve to bring attention to our industry and make the public aware of manufacturing’s enormous impact on the Hoosier economy.” Burton continued, “We congratulate ARaymond for their outstanding work and continued dedication in making Indiana a manufacturing powerhouse.”

ARaymond draws from over 155 years of expertise to create sustainable value-added fastening and assembly systems. Their expertise encompasses design, development, prototyping, and manufacturing. ARaymond’s Logansport, Indiana facility began in December of 1946, when three men developed a plan to manufacture and sell metal stampings using multi-slide bending equipment.

Today, the ARaymond Manufacturing Center in Logansport is focused on stamping, bending, assembly, and surface treatment of metal products for the mobility, energy, and construction markets. Throughout 2023-2024, the facility will once again be evolving with new state-of-the-art finishing processes that will better serve our customers’ needs today and into the future.
