South-Tek Systems, a manufacturer of nitrogen generators for heat-treating applications, plans to expand in Wilmington, N.C. The company expects to move to a higher-capacity manufacturing facility in September 2019. The custom-designed 66,000-square-foot plant is only a few miles from South-Tek’s current home, which is close to full capacity.

The relocation is part of a strategic investment to boost production and increase operational excellence. In addition, the new facility will allow for easier access to major highways.
