HaltonSCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (5/16/19) — Halton plans to open a new, 40,000-square-foot U.S. production unit in close proximity to its existing plant in Scottsville.

The company reported the facility will focus on the manufacture of air handling units, make-up air units and exhaust air pollution control systems for the needs of commercial kitchens. This will allow the current plant, with a floor area of almost 86,000 sqare feet, to focus on commercial kitchens’ hood and air distribution solutions. Expanding production to include air handling units is part of Halton’s new growth strategy, aiming at increased sales of the company’s customer-oriented total solutions and at doubling their market in North and South America.

The investment is worth a total of about $8 million, the Halton Group reported. The plant’s machinery accounts for about half that amount.

Halton has been expanding its operations in North America steadily since 1997, when it opened the current plant is Scottsville. Last year, Halton acquired LCSystems which brought along new air handling unit knowhow and technology that will also be manufactured in the new production unit. In future, the products and solutions manufactured in Halton’s Scottsville plants will complement each other.

”Cutting-edge technology and the ability to provide our customers and users with the best value in the market, even in the most demanding indoor environments, is at the heart of Halton’s business mission. Our customers are also increasingly interested in buying high-quality total solutions and we want to offer them the Halton quality all the way,”  Phil Meredith, director of Halton Foodservice for the Americas region said in a statement.

In developing and refining new technology for its customers’ demanding environments, Halton has traditionally relied on its international R&D centers, Halton Innovation Hubs, one of which is located in the current Scottsville plant. A new Halton Innovation Hub is being planned for the new plant within the next couple of years.

”It is important to our customers that we can offer them state-of-the-art technology that also complies with the local standards," Meredith said. "Our products aimed at the American market are U.L. and E.T.L. listed."

The new factory will be inaugurated today and the premises should be operational by the end of the month.
