Sullair recently announced plans to expand its North America operations and headquarters campus in Michigan City.
The approximately $30-million expansion project includes the construction of a new 80,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing building, a canopied storage building and an additional parking lot for employees. The project will also reconfigure and optimize portions of the existing, primary 280,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility on the campus.
The expansion will allow Sullair to increase its manufacturing capacity and production of air compressors. The company anticipates adding more than 30 full-time jobs in Michigan City.
The expansion comes on the heels of Sullair investing more than $16 million to upgrade its Michigan City-based rotor shop equipment in 2017.
