VT LeeBoy Inc. has opened its new production facility in Lincolnton, N.C.
Located just north of Charlotte, the 219,000-sq.-ft. facility serves as the company headquarters and houses its parts, service and production operations.
With 250 employees on the 30-acre Lincoln County Industrial Park site, the plant will produce approximately 35 different models of LeeBoy road construction and maintenance equipment.
Construction of the facility began nearly a year ago and was completed in June. The move of all nine production lines, office functions, warehousing, fabrication and painting operations from the smaller Denver, N.C., plant located 20 mi. away was concluded by the end of September.
“This new facility will allow VT LeeBoy to better offer the quality services and products our customers have come to expect. The ability to easily expand the facility to meet our future growth will also allow VT LeeBoy to support growth domestically and internationally for years to come,” said Kelly Majeskie, president and CEO.
B.R. Lee Industries was acquired by Vision Technologies Land Systems, a wholly owed subsidiary of VT Systems, in June 2006 and reflagged as VT LeeBoy.
