COOLIDGE, Ga. - Hurst Boiler & Welding Co. Inc. has announced a major building expansion, a project that will double the current size of its manufacturing facilities and corporate headquarters to over 220,000 square feet. Groundbreaking occurred in mid-2006 with construction and occupancy being completed for the grand opening on April 12, 2007.

“We are building a structure that is similar to the existing 117,000-square-foot building, in an additional building adjacent to the existing facility,” said Jeff Hurst, vice president, sales & marketing. "So on one hand, the ultimate appearance of the site will be much larger simply due to the sheer scope of the project and size of the final structure. But on the other hand, our staff, distributors, and visitors will easily recognize the continuation of the identifiable Hurst Boiler structure and presence."

Scott Hobbs, new plant manager and coordinator, said increased sales necessitated the expansion to accommodate increased manufacturing, research, and development.

One of the new features of the Hurst expansion is the 35,000-square-foot state-of-the-art vessel code shop. Plant visitors will be able to view the latest in boiler technology and boiler and vessel manufacturing processes. Training and continuing education facilities will also be included in the new design’s office space, encompassing 17,050 square feet.

Hurst Boiler is a major supplier of gas, oil, and wood fired boilers. For more information, visit www.hurstboiler.com.
