VALPARAISO, IN, January 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- As the global leader in manufacturing and selling industrial food cutting machines, Urschel Laboratories, Inc. maintains large manufacturing headquarters in Valparaiso, Indiana. This 250,000-plus square feet facility is now proving too small to attend to the company's growing needs, resulting in plans for a new 350,000-plus square feet facility in nearby Chesterton, Indiana. It is expected that the purchase of approximately 160 acres of land will allow for further growth of the company.
The company has been at its present location since 1958. It has experienced tremendous growth over the years, and has expanded the facility over 28 times to equal its current size. The area surrounding the manufacturing plant has also continued to grow leaving the facility landlocked, so Urschel needed to look into construction options.
"Our employees and providing the best service to our customers were both kept in mind when deciding on a new location," according to Bob Urschel, President/CEO of Urschel.
The company is expected to break ground at the new location in the spring of 2013 with construction completion slated for sometime in 2015.
Founded in 1910, Urschel Laboratories, Inc. continues to be the world leader in the manufacturing of high capacity precision cutters for the food processing and related industries. For more information, visit our web site at http://www.urschel.com .---
