A manufacturer of heavy industrial electric motors and generators is expanding its presence in Tucson.
Indiana-based Flanders has broken ground on a 6,750-square-foot administrative and warehouse building, adding to its footprint at 5785 S. Belvedere Ave., where it has a 10,000-square-foot repair facility.
The new building will include 4,500 square feet of warehouse space and 2,250 square feet of office space that will allow for expansion of shop capabilities.
“With this expansion of our Tucson Regional Service Center, we will be able to offer additional repair and service capabilities for our local customer base,” said Josh Jones, director of Flanders Tucson and its Mexico Regional Service Center.
“Flanders is a great example of Tucson’s growing industrial base that services the mining industry,” said David Blanchette, with NAI Horizon, who brokered the deal.
Headquartered in Evansville, Indiana, Flanders is a private company specializing in the design, manufacturing and service of the motors, generators, controls, drives and automation systems used in heavy industrial equipment.
The expansion is expected to be complete in August 2018.
