Greenheck Plans Oklahoma Site to Support Strategic Growth
Company expands global footprint
SCHOFIELD, Wis. — After a search of multiple sites in the south-central U.S., Greenheck has selected Tulsa, Oklahoma, for the development of a new campus that will house manufacturing and distribution for several of the company’s products and brands. The announcement comes weeks after Greenheck announced a $19 million expansion of its facilities in Schofield and Mosinee, Wisconsin.
The new location will build on the existing manufacturing and distribution capabilities for several of the company’s products and brands and is strategically located to complement the company’s operations in Wisconsin and elsewhere across the U.S. and abroad. The decision to expand to the south–central part of the country supports Greenheck’s continued growth. The central location will allow the company to better service a growing roster of customers across the country.
The company plans to break ground later this year in Tulsa and be operational at their first two facilities by summer 2018. Initially, the new location will include manufacturing operations and distribution for Greenheck’s Accurex brand of commercial kitchen ventilation systems and its Tempered Air Products (TAP) line.
Greenheck’s new presence in Tulsa is expected to create 75 jobs in 2018 with that number expected to significantly rise as the vision for the location becomes a reality over the next five years. Tulsa’s skilled workforce was an important factor in deciding to locate there. The Accurex facility will be the first to open next summer followed closely by the TAP facility in the fall of 2018. The vision is that additional facilities to support other Greenheck brands and product lines will establish a Tulsa presence as growth needs dictate.
“As our customer base continues to grow, it’s critical that we grow our operations here in Wisconsin and beyond to support those customers,” said Jim McIntyre, CEO of Greenheck. “Providing best-in-class service to our customers is at the heart of what we do and that is rooted in our Midwestern values that drive the culture of the company whether in Wisconsin, Oklahoma, or at our other locations.”
