Harvey Performance Co. opens tool manufacturing plant in Maine

Facility will expand availability of Helical Solutions tools.


Gorham, Maine – Harvey Performance Co., parent company of Harvey Tool, Helical Solutions, and Micro 100 industrial cutting tools, has opened a 79,000ft2, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Gorham, Maine, to support the growth and product demand its brands continue to experience.

Harvey Performance Co. was quickly outgrowing its Sanford Drive facility in Gorham, Maine, where Helical Solutions products have been manufactured for more than 15 years. The new manufacturing facility, which is just 5 minutes away on Raceway Drive, will become home to Helical Solutions product manufacturing and will serve as an innovation hub for all Harvey Performance Co. brands.

“We couldn’t be more excited about this new facility,” Harvey Performance Co. Senior Vice President of Sales Jerry Gleisner said. “We’re quite literally opening the doors to countless opportunities for us to serve our customers in ways unmatched in the industry.”

“This new facility is an exciting step for our business, as this investment will create opportunities for us to continue to grow,” said Harvey Performance Co. vice president of operations Steve Vatcher. “In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we worked closely with state and local officials to ensure that the completion of our new facility was done in a way that prioritized the health and safety of all involved. I couldn’t be more proud of how everyone came together to make this facility a reality during these unprecedented times. “When it is safe to do so, we look forward to hosting the Gorham community, our neighbors for more than 15 years, at our new home for a ribbon cutting ceremony to share this exciting milestone with us.”
