Greenheck Announces Manufacturing Expansion
SCHOFIELD, Wisc. — Greenheck has established two new Schofield campus facilities, the Robert C. Greenheck Innovation Center and the Bernard A. Greenheck Education Center, to honor its founders and industry pioneers, Bob and Bernie Greenheck.
"These facilities will recognize the Greenheck brothers’ vision, determination and sound, admirable business values forming the foundation for our phenomenal worldwide growth as a leader in the non-residential air movement and control industry," said Jim McIntyre, president and CEO of the Greenheck Group. "We’re proud to call Schofield our home and are thrilled to honor our founders with these world-class facilities in this community."
The new, 69,000 square foot research and development facility, the Robert C. Greenheck Innovation Center, will improve collaboration among Greenheck’s manufacturing, engineering, marketing, sourcing, logistics, testing, and machine development disciplines and business units.
Construction of the innovation center will begin this fall and feature state-of-the-art sound and psychrometric labs, product prototyping, dedicated space for developing and fine-tuning manufacturing processes, office space to support employee growth through this decade and additional meeting and training space.
When completed in late 2015 or early 2016, the facility will provide the Greenheck Group with state-of-the- art testing capabilities for air movement and control products of nearly all sizes.
The Bernard A. Greenheck Education Center will incorporate the Greenheck Product Center, which opened in 1996. This past year nearly 2,000 guests from around the world visited the 27,500 square foot facility, which showcases more than 100 Greenheck products.
This facility is also an educational training site for customers and business partners and provides opportunities to learn more about Greenheck’s products/applications and to interact directly with Greenheck team members. Visitors can discuss Greenheck’s total campus operations, from engineering and product development to manufacturing and shipping.
