Kanfit Moves Into New, Larger Manufacturing Facility
Kanfit Ltd. has moved into its new facility in Northern Israel. At 11,000 sq. meters (118,000 sq. ft.) the plant is approximately triple the size of its old one, enabling the company to expand its products and services to meet customer demands. Kanfit manufactures primary and detailed parts, sub-assemblies, and fit and fly assemblies made from composites and sheet & block metals, and the integration of both.
“These are exciting times for Kanfit," explained Shai Fine, General Manager of the company. "Our spacious new building has been designed to improve operations, streamline manufacturing, increase efficiency and support innovation in the engineering and manufacturing of high-quality aerospace products. We have also added more technologically advanced production equipment and machinery not found at our previous place of operation."
The new building provides more manufacturing, clean room, paint room, and laboratory space, as well as a larger warehouse and more offices for staff. In addition, there will be a new chemical processing line for Alodine with the infrastructure to add additional chemical processes in the future.
Kanfit recently entered into a partnership with Rafael Advanced Defense Systems. Rafael acquired a 50 percent stake in Kanfit, a private company owned by Shai and Shula Fine.
