Sennebogen Announces Plans to Double Facility
Denver, NC-Sennebogen LLC, located in eastern Lincoln County, announces plans to double the size of its current facility to accommodate customer demands in North and South America, as well as its worldwide distribution channels.
A German family owned company which manufactures heavy material handlers out of Europe, Sennebogen operates its North American sales, service and distribution center in Denver, NC. Since opening its doors in 2008 to this current facility, Sennebogen has seen significant sales growth and now requires additional space to store the massive sized parts required to service its product and to supply customer demands.
With the expansion announcement, Sennebogen plans to add 45,000 square feet to its existing facility. The complete investment with the cost of the expanded building, as well as additional equipment, is expected to be over $3 million dollars. The estimated completion date for the expansion is summer 2012. Up to five additional jobs will be added as the project nears to completion.
Tom Anderson, Chair of the Lincoln Economic Development Association Board of Directors, offers “LEDA is pleased to announce another expansion from a thriving company in spite of the economic conditions currently in place. Lincoln County is fortunate to have Sennebogen as one of our top performing industries.”
“The international representation and investment of industries in Lincoln County continues to grow. In 2011 alone, Blum, an Austrian company, announced an expansion investment of $18 million. Sennebogen of Germany has just announced their expansion plans. The recent announcements of Hydac, from Germany, to build in Airlie Business Park in Denver and Main Filter of Canada opening a US operation in Lincolnton, continues to tell the story. International companies want to expand their businesses and presence in the United States. Lincoln County has done a wonderful job creating an environment where industries can be successful,” stated Kara Brown, Existing Business Manager for the Lincoln Economic Development Association.
