Sullair Expanding in Michigan City

Air compressor manufacturer Sullair, a Hitachi Group company. is expanding its North America operations and headquarters campus in Michigan City, Ind.

The approximately $30 million expansion project, which broke ground on October 4th, includes the construction of a new 80,000 sq. ft. manufacturing building, a canopied storage building and an additional parking lot for employees. The project will also reconfigure and optimize portions of the existing, primary 280,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility on the campus.

Sullair said the expansion will allow it to increase its manufacturing capacity and production of air compressors. With that, the company anticipates adding more than 30 full-time jobs in Michigan City. Sullair produces compressors for construction and industrial applications in nearly every vertical at Michigan City. The company also manufactures components such as air ends, used in oil and gas applications.

This expansion comes on the heels of Sullair investing more than $16 million to upgrade its Michigan City-based rotor shop equipment in 2017. Since the founding of Sullair in 1965, the company has designed and manufactured its rotors and air end assemblies in Michigan City.

 “Following the acquisition of Sullair by Hitachi in 2017, our business has continued to grow both domestically and internationally,” said Sullair’s Charlie Takeuchi, COO and executive vice president. “To continue our aggressive growth in an increasingly competitive and consolidating space, we are making significant investments in Michigan City providing us more flexibility in how we run our business.”
