Parts manufacturer Flottweg Separation Technology Inc. broke ground on a $1.75 million warehouse in Boone County Tuesday, and Gov. Andy Beshear was on hand for the celebration.
He said it is an exciting time to do business in Kentucky.
“And it is even more exciting to see companies continue to grow and provide quality job opportunities to our workforce throughout the state,” Beshear said.
The expansion – the company’s fourth since 2011 – comes in response to rising demand and will accommodate increased parts manufacturing. This investment in Flottweg’s Northern Kentucky operation, which assembles and repairs machinery for the company’s existing customer base, will support construction of a new 15,000-square-foot warehouse on Flottweg’s existing campus on Toebben Drive, expected to be completed by Q1 2023.
“This expansion is another step in our continued growth,” said Flottweg President Dan Ellis. “It means more jobs and better support for our customers.”
Established in 2006, Flottweg Separation Technology is a subsidiary of Flottweg SE, which was founded in Germany in 1932. Flottweg SE produces centrifuges, belt presses and separators used for liquid-solid separation.
The company’s products support a range of industries, including the mining, petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage and machining sectors. Its products also have environmental uses, including the treatment of wastewater or oil sludge.
“We had the opportunity to visit Flottweg’s headquarters in Germany in June and thanked the leadership team for their commitment to growth in the United States,” said Northern Kentucky Tri-ED CEO Lee Crume. “As global companies evaluate their supply chain and operations, it’s encouraging to see new investment from FDI companies, like Flottweg, in Northern Kentucky.”
