Kaeser begins US headquarters expansion

Nov. 30, 2020
The new space will allow Kaeser to increase manufacturing capacity, and will accommodate an additional 100 employees.

Kaeser Compressors Inc. has broken ground on a 30,000-square-foot expansion of its U.S. headquarters facility near Fredericksburg, Va. The company held a virtual ceremony to mark the occasion, led by Frank Mueller, president.

The expansion will allow Kaeser to increase capacity to meet rising demand from its customers, many of whom are deemed essential. The new space will accommodate an additional 100 employees, with a cafe, kitchen and dining area. Construction is expected to be finished by November 2021.

“At this critical time, we are increasing capacity to serve our customers’ needs in the many essential industries throughout the country,” Mueller said. “This new and exciting project will allow us to better support our national distribution network and our ever-expanding business in the U.S. And like our original building which we opened 25 years ago, this new addition is dedicated to our employees, Kaeser’s most valuable resource.”
