On Monday, March 21, the Plan Commission considered and approved Site and Operational Plans for Jack Heide, agent on behalf of Rehrig Pacific Co., for a proposed approximately 49,000 square foot manufacturing addition and associated site improvements to their existing facility located at 7800 100th Street within the LakeView Corporate Park.
Rehrig Pacific has occupied their LakeView Corporate Park facility since the building was constructed in 1996. The expansion will create capacity to fulfill a new customer base that is expected to add up to seven to nine million units annually. The building expansion will house approximately 17 plastics injection molding machines to accommodate customer demands. This facility is strategically located amongst their customer base which solidified the need to expand this location. Rehrig Pacific anticipates adding up to 36 new jobs to facilitate the added capacity over a three-year project. As a part of the expansion, Rehrig will provide up to 82 parking spaces and five additional shipping docks to accommodate employees and logistical needs. The expansion project is anticipated to start May 2022 and be completed by November 2022.
