Sparta Manufacturing Facility Expands

SPARTA – THK Rhythm North America Co. Ltd., located in Sparta, has selected J&S Construction to complete a 60,168 square-foot addition to one of its existing buildings. The Sparta location currently houses the company’s corporate offices, as well as engineering, manufacturing and QA testing facilities.

The pre-engineered metal building will be comprised of a light gauge metal interior framing with exterior metal panels and a metal roof system. The expansion’s manufacturing area will be reinforced with an 8” thick interior concrete slab and will contain new production pits as well as a new floor grate system.

A 1,200 square-yard, heavy duty pavement area and approximately 1,800 square yards of new employee parking will also be added to the north end of the facility, all of which will be surrounded by a fencing system and associated gates.

THK Rhythm North America Co., Ltd. is a supplier of suspension ball joints, aluminum suspension links, steering tie rods and stabilizer connecting rods to the North American automotive industry.
