Liberty Pumps has broken ground on a major building expansion that will add an additional 81,000 square feet to its manufacturing and warehouse space, as well as another 8,000 square feet to its product research and development area. Since its last expansion in 2008, Liberty has more than doubled its sales. “This expansion will provide needed space for additional manufacturing cells along with supporting inventory – improving workflow and productivity. We want to make sure that as we grow, we continue to provide a high level of service to our customers.” states Randall Waldron, V.P. of Sales and Marketing. “Expansion to the R & D facilities will support development of new product lines and improve the product time to market.” The project also includes several pieces of new manufacturing equipment intended to improve efficiencies and further support the company’s “source and build in the U.S.” initiatives. Construction is planned to be completed by February 2015.
