Innovative Percussion Expands Facility And Operations

Innovative Percussion Inc., which marks its 25th anniversary in 2018, announces its expanded facility and production process. By adding 5,000 square feet, the Nashville-based drumstick and mallet company created much needed additional space for current production, warehousing, and shipping facilities, while accommodating a newly added, state-of-the-art in-house drumstick turning operation that was carefully designed and developed over a period of several years.

The computerized wood turning lathes are able to simultaneously cut and sand the drumsticks, while the addition of other proprietary manufacturing equipment allows for a much more efficient process. This added production capability highly compliments the computerized weight and pitch sorting technology that Innovative Percussion has used since 2013, which the company says has the tightest pairing tolerances within the industry.

This expansion will allow Innovative Percussion to have all drumstick and mallet manufacturing under one roof, giving the company much greater quality control.
