Vitamix to Expand Manufacturing Facilities, Office Space

       

       

CLEVELAND—Vitamix has begun an expansion of its manufacturing, warehousing and shipping facilities, and its office space.

The addition to its manufacturing area, which will increase the size by 33,000 square feet, will include more production lines, a new shipping area and an expanded warehouse. Also, Vitamix will grow its office space by 7,000 square feet to provide additional offices for employees. The entire project will be completed by this coming December, a Vitamix statement said.

Dan Koch, Vitamix’s national sales manager, said the company’s sales have increased 40 percent year to date versus 2009, and that the company believes it has entered “a sustained growth pattern”—thus necessitating the facility expansion.
