Superior Industries building new screen product manufacturing plant in Columbus
COLUMBUS, Neb. — Superior Industries Inc. completed a major expansion at its manufacturing plant in Columbus, Neb.
The expansion creates space and adds capabilities for building newly launched Guardian Horizontal Screens and portable processing plants for crushing, screening, washing and feeding, in addition to the wet processing equipment already manufactured at the plant.

“Although we incorporated the existing facility into our expansion, it’s like working in a brand new plant,” said Michael Monaghan, general manager of Superior’s operations in Nebraska. “We integrated the best principals of lean manufacturing and were able to achieve a straight line process. Product comes in as raw steel at one end and exit one of the two lines as finished, ready to ship equipment.”
In addition, the 44-year-old company doubled the engineering staff dedicated to developing the screens, washers and portable plants manufactured and shipped from Nebraska.
