Brewery equipment maker Norland expanding again
Brewery equipment maker Norland expanding again.
Construction will start on the 18,000-square-foot building this week, and it is expected to be completed by October, company officials said.
The new building will give Norland close to 90,000 total square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space.
“Our company has grown exponentially over the past several years and … and we see this as a wise investment for the future,” Vice President Bruce Kucera said in a news release.
Norland was founded in 1993 and moved to its current location in 2004, when it constructed its first 33,000-square-foot building.
In late 2011, the company decided to get into the business of manufacturing craft beer production equipment leading to its next division, American Beer Equipment.
In 2013, Norland established its most recent division, Norland Pure, which is dedicated to delivering premium distilled and enhanced bottled water to Lincoln and surrounding areas.
In early 2016, the company opened its 34,000-square-foot innovation and technology center, which houses a new canning line, a high-speed bottling line that accommodates both glass and plastic bottles, a new spirits distillery manufacturing line and a "de-palletizer" that makes unloading and stacking cans easier.
Norland, which as recently as 2014 had fewer than 50 employees, now has more than 100 and continues to grow it’s labor force.
