By NBC NewsPublished Nov 20, 2018 06:08:06The machine parts used to make granita machines are used in everything from washing machines to car parts.
In a country where the economy has been on the brink of collapse, the machines are a way to make ends meet.
But the machines themselves are also being made by a small company called Granite Technologies.
“This is the only machine I know of that is made by only one person, which is kind of amazing,” said Steve Vickers, a business analyst for the consulting firm PwC.
“And you can actually buy them online.”
Granite says it has created the machines by using its own manufacturing process and making it so that its machines are designed to last and not break down over time.
It started by building a machine with just a single piece of steel.
It then went on to build more, and now the machines can make everything from car parts to food.
“There’s a lot of demand for this machine.
The industry is really going through a very significant change in terms of how much you need to produce and the amount of money you need in order to be able to compete with other businesses in the field,” said Tom Kelleher, who runs the company.
It’s not just cars that need a machine, too.
The U.S. is already the second-largest consumer of granita chips, and companies like Granite are hoping to capitalize on that.
“We want to be part of the machine-making ecosystem,” said Kelleh.
The machines are being made at the company’s plant in Tustin, California, and the factory has a production capacity of 1 million a year.
That’s enough to make about 7.8 million machines a year, according to Granite.
