Pitco Frialator is moving forward with plans to construct a 356,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Concord, New Hampshire after it was granted major site plan approval.
The 103-year old maker of commercial fryers moved to Bow in 1950 and currently has additional facilities in Concord and Pembroke.
The new Concord plant will consolidate all three locations into a single, efficient layout incorporating office, manufacturing and warehouse space and supporting 400 jobs.
Karl Searl, VP and general manager at Pitco, said: “This new world-class manufacturing facility will be instrumental in preparing Pitco for its next level of growth and will allow us to increase production capacity to support our global foodservice customers. It will also play a critical role in bolstering our highly skilled and robust workforce.”
Mr Searl said that keeping its business based in the state is important for it to maintain its culture of quality workmanship and customer-centric values.
“We are appreciative for the support from the City of Concord and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship as partners in the upcoming years,” he said.
Construction on the new facility is planned to start in 2022.
