BG Products announced that it has broken ground for what will be a 145,000-square-foot facility near its existing distribution center in El Dorado, Kansas.
The massive structure will house its warehousing and distribution operations while a portion of production operations transition to the existing distribution facility.
In response to product demand in the marketplace, the added space will increase efficiency, according to the company.
“We are pleased to announce the expansion of what will be a state-of-the-art, higher capacity facility,” said Ron Garcia, COO and CFO of BG Products. “We continue to look forward to a bright future at BG.”
Construction will be complete by Sept. 30, the company said.
The recent groundbreaking follows the current construction of the new 34,000-square-foot BG Technology and Training Center at BG corporate headquarters in Wichita.
