Hach Plans Multimillion-dollar Expansion
News Jan 22, 2016
Hach has announced that it will move forward with a new multimillion-dollar expansion. Hach plans to complete the project and open the new building in late 2017.
Hach will build an 86,000-square foot research and development center, which will house work spaces for its development teams, with multiple testing and development laboratories. The facility will be built on the existing Hach campus near the Fort Collins-Loveland airport.
“Hach has a great history of innovation, and this investment will ensure we continue to develop state-of-the-art new products, attract great talent and maintain our commitment to customers,” said Kevin Klau, President of Hach. “Cliff and Kitty Hach chose Loveland more than 35 years ago to expand their growing business, and it’s exciting to make this investment in light of Hach’s continued growth.”
Hach’s existing Loveland facilities include two buildings with more than 200,000 square feet that are currently used for manufacturing, research and development, marketing, technical support, customer service and other business functions. More than 750 associates work on the Loveland campus and another 50 are working from leased office space in Fort Collins. This expansion will offer additional space to support Hach’s near-term and anticipated future growth.
“Our commitment to invest in research and development to support Hach’s continued growth helps enable us to keep delivering on our mission to ensure water quality for people around the world,” Klau said.
