Greenheck Announces North Carolina Manufacturing Expansion
Greenheck has announced that it will expand its manufacturing facilities in Shelby, North Carolina. The company will invest nearly $60 million to expand production of its Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (DOAS), Tempered Air Products (TAP) and Architectural Products. Several hundred new manufacturing jobs will be created over the next five years.
The expansion plans include the purchase of an existing manufacturing facility which will support increased demand for Greenheck DOAS and TAP products. Construction of a new Architectural Products facility on the Shelby campus is expected to begin in the near future to accommodate increased sales of architectural louvers, sun controls, grilles and screens.
“Greenheck has made significant investments in people and operations over the last several years,” said Tim Kilgore, Greenheck President of Sales and Marketing. “Our investments in manufacturing have included five new or expanded facilities in Schofield, Wisconsin; an entirely new campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and now the ongoing campus investment and expansion in North Carolina. With several of our manufacturing facilities at or near operational capacity, it’s time to expand. The Southeastern U.S. market offers tremendous future opportunities for us, and we can best serve those customers with shorter delivery times and lower freight costs by being closer to the action.”
