Everidge, Minneapolis, completed an expansion to its Greeneville, Tenn., facility. The $1.25 million expansion increases the facility size by 30,000 square feet and capacity by 30%. The expansion also allows Everidge to better serve customers with shorter lead times, additional capacity and improved efficiency.

The new space will expand the metal fabrication and assembly divisions of the Greeneville plant, which manufactures equipment for Everidge brands CrownTonka and ThermalRite.

“The Greeneville facility is strategic for distribution,” says Mike Kahler, chief operating officer. “It’s located within a 1-day shipping area to 75% of the country’s population, and the expansion addresses the growing demand from our customers in the eastern U.S.”

The expansion also creates 50 new jobs in the Greeneville area.
