Springfield, MO. (March 17, 2017) - Paul Mueller Company, based in Springfield, Missouri, USA is announcing plans to build a new facility in Groenlo, a town in the east-central portion of the Netherlands. The new facility will be located approximately 6 miles (10 km) from one of Paul Mueller Company’s current Dutch manufacturing facilities in Lichtenvoorde.
“Groenlo was chosen because of its close proximity to the current Lichtenvoorde location, said Paul Mueller Company CEO David Moore. “This will ease the transition for the majority of the production employees and will allow us to accommodate future growth and an expanded product offering”
The new facility will consolidate four locations the Company currently operates in the Netherlands, including the Lichtenvoorde location. The $19 (€17) million project is expected to have a positive return based on eliminating redundancies between the four facilities, the rent paid on three of the facilities, and the sale of the primary manufacturing location in Lichtenvoorde.
According to Wytze Tjepkema, General Manager of Paul Mueller Company subsidiary Mueller BV in the Netherlands, “this project will combine the companies acquired in 2008 into one location creating a stronger culture and improving collaboration and efficiencies.”
Pending final approval of construction plans and loan documents, construction should start in the summer of 2017 with a completion date projected to be in the summer of 2018.
