Columbus city and chamber of commerce representatives joined Columbus Hydraulics recently to break ground on the company’s $12 million facility on the east side of Columbus. The project includes $2.5 million in new equipment and upgrades.
“It’s awesome to be able to keep a manufacturing business like Columbus Hydraulics here in Columbus,” Mayor Jim Bulkley said. “The fact that they chose to stay here, I think it’s a testament to our community, our employees (and) the (residents). It’s a great company and it’s great to see them relocate to this new location to build and grow from here.”
The hydraulic equipment supplier, founded in 1952, currently employs around 150 people and hopes to be at 200 when they move into the new 110,000 square foot facility in September of 2019.
