Nexus Corporation broke ground for the construction of an addition to its greenhouse manufacturing facility in Pana, Ill. on March 7, 2012. The building is expected to be completed within the next four months.
The new facility will more than double the footprint of the existing building and will incorporate all of the latest in technological advances. Both steel and aluminum greenhouses are manufactured in the Pana plant. The expanded space and addition of equipment will triple capacity in the facility over the next two years. There will be a streamlined material flow from inventory to finished product.
The Nexus Pana plant supplies both the Nexus and National Greenhouse product-line for customers in the Midwest and along the East Coast.
“Our new facility is designed to maximize efficiency and enhance production. The new building will allow us to manufacture an even better product,” Nexus Corp. CEO Cheryl Longtin said. “We are always improving and looking for new ways to serve our customers. We are proud of our continuing commitment to provide the best in manufacturing, new product technology and the best customer service possible.”
Nexus Corporation began operation in 1967. The company is headquartered in Northglenn, Colo. Nexus is an international manufacturer of commercial, institutional, residential, and retail greenhouses.
