After continued growth, the Company is moving forward with plans for a 230,000 sq. ft. addition.
AAON is pleased to announce a major expansion project to its facility in Longview, TX. The groundbreaking to begin construction on the 230,000-square-foot addition is scheduled for Tuesday, July 18th, at 10:00 am at 203 Gum Springs Road, Longview, Texas, 75602.
The Longview Economic Development Corporation (LEDCO) voted to approve support of the expansion plan in April of this year. With continued growth and product demand, AAON is moving forward with this $40 million capital investment to double an earlier expansion completed in 2021. The Company plans to increase its production capacity of current products, create space for manufacturing new products, and expand coil production capabilities. This brings opportunities for AAON to create approximately 250 new full-time jobs in Longview. The new space will include three additional loading and shipping docks, a new employee entrance and breakroom, and more employee parking.
"AAON has been a proud member of Longview and surrounding communities for 30 years. There is a tremendous amount of growth opportunity for our Longview location, and we couldn't be more excited. AAON Longview's partnership with LEDCO and other local development organizations has allowed us to capitalize on unprecedented growth up to this point. AAON will continue to support our local communities and team members for many years. We're just getting started." Doug Wichman, Vice President of AAON, Inc., and President of AAON Coil Products.
