Drum Workshop, Inc. Expands U.S. Manufacturing

The world-renowned, American manufacturer of DW-branded drums, pedals and hardware recently announced the expansion of drum production at its more than 80,000 square foot facility in Oxnard, California. The move comes after a careful review of manufacturing processes and material acquisition that found it possible to expand production at one central location. As part of the restructuring program, the company's Ensenada, Mexico facility will no longer be utilized and complete operations, including the highly-successful line of DW Performance Series drums, will move to DW's Oxnard headquarters.

DW HQ Drum Workshop President and CEO, Chris Lombardi, comments, "We're really happy to be bringing jobs back to California. Because we like to offer drummers various price points and bring DW innovation to more drummers, we've had to venture overseas in recent years. Expanding here in Oxnard sends a message to our dedicated employees and our entire industry that we can make high-quality instruments right here in California."

The expanding California plant currently manufactures and assembles DW Custom Shop drums, including the popular Collector's Series, Classics Series and Jazz Series, in addition to 9000 Series pedals and a myriad of stands and hardware components.

Drum Workshop Director of Operations, Lynn Robison, adds, "This decision is the result of an ongoing campaign to improve processes and efficiency throughout our manufacturing operations. The progress we have already realized allows us to consolidate our DW drum lines under one roof. Our primary focus is to provide our customers with the same quality products and service that have become synonymous with the DW brand." Robison adds that the transition will begin in March with the timetable for completion still to be determined. During the interim period, all DW Custom Shop and Performance Series drums will remain available to order with standard lead times.

Drum Workshop, Inc. is an American manufacturer of professional drums, pedals and hardware. Many of the world's top professionals, such as Tommy Lee, Sheila E., Mick Fleetwood, Neil Peart, Max Weinberg and Dave Grohl have made the DW brand "The Drummer's Choice." Drum Workshop is also home to Pacific Drums and Percussion, a full line of production drum and hardware products.
