Spurred by the growth in worldwide sales of its diversified line of control valves, regulators and tank blanketing systems, Cashco, Inc., currently based in Ellsworth, Kan., released plans to expand its headquarters. Earlier this year, Cashco unveiled a new engineering lab.

“The primary reason for building a new headquarters facility is that we’re simply out of space to grow and expand as we add more engineering and marketing staff,” says Clint Rogers, general manager, valve division. “So, this will allow us to grow not only physically, but organically through new product development. By building a new office building, we will also be able to re-purpose the existing office, which is attached to our manufacturing plant, and use it for other needs, including an upgrade of some of the assembly areas and more office space for the engineering department.”

According to Rogers, the new 20,000-square-foot facility is tentatively scheduled for completion in 2013, and will feature several conference rooms, in addition to more office space. The new building will also use geothermal heating and cooling and a number of multi-pane windows for better lighting.

“As a result of our growth and expansion, we expect to add 30-35 new jobs to the community,” Rogers adds, noting that Cashco has been headquartered in Ellsworth since relocating from Decatur, Ill., in 1976. “Not only do we have a strong history in Kansas, but in 2014, we will celebrate 100 years in business as a company. So we’re obviously proud of our history, but we’re just as excited about our future.”
