Lochinvar increases size of world headquarters to accommodate steady growth
September 29, 2014
Lochinvar has begun expanding its world headquarters in Lebanon, TN to add 74,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and storage capacity in order to keep up with the company’s growth. The manufacturer of high-efficiency water heaters, boilers, pool heaters and storage tanks will also extended the office area and enhance an engineering facility to more than twice its current size. Lochinvar has added an average of 25 new jobs per year over the last three years.
“As business continues to grow and an increasing number of our products are manufactured here at company headquarters, this development is a strategic step to ensure that we can meet demand and satisfy our expanding customer base,” said Eddie Goodwin, Lochinvar’s president and COO. Lochinvar opened its 380,000 sq. ft. facility in Lebanon, TN in 2001. The facility, which includes manufacturing, offices, product engineering development and testing labs, as well as the Lochinvar University training facility, employs about 500 people. The expansion project is expected to be complete in January 2016.
