Sullair Corp. recently announced it will invest up to $12.7 million to expand its Michigan City, Ind., headquarters, creating more than 100 new jobs by 2015. The investment will be used to purchase new equipment and make energy-efficient upgrades at the 410,000-square-foot facility, the company said.
“Sullair has called Indiana home for decades and we are pleased that they are continuing to invest in our state,” said Indiana governor Mitch Daniels. Established in 1965, Sullair also has manufacturing facilities in China and Australia. Sullair manufactures stationary and portable air compressors, compressed air treatment equipment, vacuum systems and air tools for the mining, construction, industrial, manufacturing and energy sectors.
“We expect to see increasing demands in our developed markets as the worldwide economy shakes off the lingering effects of the recent recession,” said Henry Brooks, president of Sullair. “Investing in our U.S. sites will help us meet that demand while providing resources for technological research.”
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Sullair Corp. up to $800,000 in performance-based tax credits and $75,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans.
Sullair Corp. is a business unit of Hamilton Sunstrand, a United Technologies company.
