HUTCHINSON, KS—Superior Boiler, A manufacturer of industrial and commercial boilers and boiler room equipment, recently unveiled its third and newest manufacturing facility. The 75,000-square-foot building was renovated to house Superior’s watertube division, which the company relocated from Richmond, VA. Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly, other state and local dignitaries, boiler industry partners, and all Superior employees attended the grand opening.
A state-of-the-art facility called Plant 3, it contains several newer-generation cranes, high ceilings, a paint booth with a new collection and filtration system, and, for colder months, floors with radiant heating powered by a Superior hot water boiler. The first watertube boilers manufactured at Plant 3 will be completed by the end of September. The facility is located on 18 acres, allowing for further expansion as needed.
“By relocating our watertube manufacturing to Hutchinson, more customers will benefit from our great central U.S. location, which streamlines shipping anywhere in North America and also offers nearby rail access to move products requiring ocean shipping,” says Doug Wright, CEO, Superior Boiler. “Plant 3 positions us for future growth and allows us to leverage equipment and personnel from current operations to maximize efficiency and provide better overall collaboration across our expertise and our teams.”
The grand opening was punctuated by an introduction of Superior’s newest boiler model, the Cheyenne. The hot water condensing boiler is designed for applications in large hospitals, schools, universities, and office buildings, among others.
