Sennebogen plant to double in size, add more jobs

SARAH LOWERY, STAFF WRITER

Sennebogen, a German manufacturer located in Denver, has announced that it plans to double the size of its existing facility, resulting in the addition of up to five new jobs.

According to the announcement released by the Lincoln Economic Development Association Thursday morning, the family-owned manufacturer of equipment for handling heavy material is in need of the expansion to “accommodate customer demands in North and South America, as well as its worldwide distribution channels.”

After opening its Lincoln County facility in 2008, the company has experienced significant sales growth, says the release, and needs additional storage space for the large parts required to service its product. Sennebogen’s Denver location serves as the company’s North American sales, service and distribution center.

It plans to add 45,000 square feet to its current facility, with the complete investment — including the cost of the expanded building and the extra equipment — expected to total more than $3 million.

“LEDA is pleased to announce another expansion from a thriving company in spite of the economic conditions currently in place,” Tom Anderson, chair of LEDA’s board of directors, stated in the release.

“Lincoln County is fortunate to have Sennebogen as one of our top-performing industries.”

Kara Brown, existing business manager for LEDA, added that “the international representation and investment of industries in Lincoln County continues to grow.”

The Times-News previously reported that an existing industry grant agreement with Sennebogen was presented at the Oct. 17 Lincoln County Board of Commissioners meeting, where it was passed unanimously.

The expansion project is estimated to be completed in summer 2012.
