Greenheck to spend $16 million on expansion

SCHOFIELD (WAOW) – Greenheck, a company that makes air movement and control equipment, says construction will start this fall on a 69,000 square foot research and development center.

The company also said Monday it will improve its product center by incorporating an education center, proving a training site for customers and business partners.

The two projects will cost about $16 million, said Jon Krueger, a spokesman for the company.

Both changes will honor the company's founders and industry pioneers, brothers Bob and Bernie Greenheck, said Jim McIntyre, president of the company.

The new research center will feature some state-of-the-art sound laboratories, space for fine-tuning manufacturing processes and the most up-to-date testing capabilities for air movement and control products, McIntyre said.

Construction is expected to be completed in 2015 or early 2016.

The Greenheck Group, founded in 1947, includes Greenheck Fan and Unison Comfort Technologies. Headquartered in Schofield, the company has manufacturing plants in six states, Mexico, China and India.
