Emerson recently began the first stages of its Sidney, Ohio, compressor plant expansion project, which is expected to represent a USD $100 million investment, including an upgrade to the existing facility and the addition of nearly 20,000 square feet of office and engineering space.
The project will include the addition of a two-story office onto the current facility and the conversion of existing space to new and expanded engineering laboratories.
“We began the more formal planning 18 months ago with design and architectural discussions, but this was a dream that began years ago,” said Brent Schroeder, Group President – Heating and Air Conditioning. “Our hope is to have the first stage of construction under roof by this winter. The entire project is a three- to four-year endeavor.”
