Several Equipment Industry Key Players Announce Expansion Plans

As many keep a close eye on key economic indicators, there are good signs pointing to growth in the equipment industry.

  • South Carolina-based T&S Brass and Bronze Works, maker of faucets, fittings and specialty products for foodservice operations, shared news that it will invest $10.3 million to expand its operations in Greenville County, adding 22 new jobs. Its two-phase expansion, which will be completed in Fall 2024, will increase capacity and distribution capabilities at its global headquarters; it will also include improvements to the company’s existing training facilities.
  • Katom Restaurant Supply, the No. 11 foodservice equipment dealer in FER’s Top Dealers of 2019 report, last month announced a 40,000 sq- ft. expansion to its Kodak, Tenn. home office that will add 100 jobs. According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, the expansion—which Katom expects to be completed in 2020—will include a test kitchen where operators can sample equipment, a video production studio and a larger warehouse, among other additions.
  • Henny Penny broke ground this week on the largest expansion project in the company’s 62-year history. The endeavor will result in a 35% increase to the size of its Eaton Building along with a 25,000 sq.-ft. renovation to a second building on its campus and an estimated 70 new jobs.
