Solar Atmospheres of California Inc. (SCA) announced the expansion of its Fontana facility, located 40 miles east of Los Angeles. The $5 million investment will add an additional 25,000 square feet to the current 25,000-square-foot facility, effectively doubling the size of the plant. It will also introduce multiple vacuum furnaces specifically designed and manufactured to meet the growing needs of SCA’s diverse customer base. All vacuum furnaces will be manufactured by SCA sister company, Solar Manufacturing Inc. (SAMI) of Souderton, Pa. Construction will start in the beginning of the second quarter of 2016, and the expanded facility is expected to be fully operational by the end of the year.
