ATLANTA — Miura Manufacturing America Co. Ltd. celebrated the fifth anniversary of its state-of-the-art boiler systems manufacturing facility in the Rockmart 101 Industrial Park, in Rockmart, Georgia, on May 19 with a special celebration and plant tour attended by government officials, Miura executives, and employees.

Miura opened its 100,000-square-foot Rockmart factory in May 2009 in a partnership with the Development Authority of Polk County, the Polk County Commission, the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and the city of Rockmart. At the time, Miura estimated its total capital investment in the project at approximately $15 million. The company said that the key to its success in Rockmart has been the skills of the local Polk County labor force in Rockmart and surrounding communities. Working in conjunction with Georgia Northwestern Technical College and the state of Georgia, Miura invested in retraining workers for the precision welding necessary for the manufacture of Miura steam boilers.

As of May 2009, Miura Manufacturing America’s Rockmart plant has created dozens of jobs for the local economy and has manufactured 500 boilers purchased by a wide range of industries. For 2013, Miura’s total North American Operations sold $29,943,749 in products for a total profit of $1,346,511.

“During these five years, we expanded business to Mexico and Brazil, and managed to become profitable in four years out of a five-year plan,” said Mark Utzinger, Miura Manufacturing president, in a speech delivered at the celebration. “We build almost everything at our Rockmart plant, including all chemicals and ancillaries. We can now say we have Miura Pride, Made in the U.S.A.

“For the future, we will continue to expand,” Utzinger added. “We will provide total steam solutions for our customers — not simply supply a boiler. We will become best partners for our customers to reduce harmful gas emissions and increase their competitive edge. More importantly, however, it is our employees — working as a team — that will catapult us into the future. It is our employees that will continuously improve our products, quality, and customer service. I salute you all.”
