Urschel to build new global headquarters

January 14, 2013

Urschel Laboratories Inc. U.S.A., a manufacturer of high-capacity, food-cutting equipment, says it has outgrown its existing 250,000-plus-sq.-ft. global manufacturing headquarters in Valparaiso, Ind., and plans to construct a 350,000-plus-sq.ft., state-of-the-art facility in nearby Chesterton, Ind. The purchase of approximately 160 acres will allow for the company’s future growth.

Urschel Laboratories has been at its Valparaiso location since 1958 and has expanded its manufacturing plant more than 28 times over the years due to growth. The area surrounding the plant has also continued to grow, leaving the facility landlocked.

“Our employees and providing the best service to our customers were both kept in mind when deciding on a new location,” says president and CEO Bob Urschel.

The company is expected to break ground at the new location this spring and complete construction sometime in 2015.
