Vactor To Expand Illinois Manufacturing Facility

Vactor Manufacturing Inc. plans to expand its Streator, Ill., manufacturing facility. The project is expected to increase its production capacity and add up to 90 additional jobs.

The first phase of the project will expand the existing fabrication, welding, paint and assembly areas, as well as the test bays. Additionally, the current training center and customer inspection facility will be updated. Overall, the expansion will add approximately 100,000 sq.ft. to the existing facility. Construction is expected to begin in the first half of 2019, with completion targeted by the end of the year.

Vactor’s parent company, Federal Signal Corp., is expecting to invest up to $25 million over the course of the expansion project, which will increase efficiency and capacity to supply the growing demand for Vactor’s newly redesigned 2100i combination sewer cleaner and the new Truvac branded series of hydroexcavators.

Vactor began operations in Chicago in 1911, initially as the Myers-Sherman Co. It moved to Streator in the 1930s. Federal Signal acquired Vactor in 1994.
