Girbau Begins Two-Phase Expansion Project

Posted March 24, 2017 at 12:41 pm

Continental Girbau Inc., Oshkosh, WI, recently broke ground on its third facility expansion since 2000, according to President Mike Floyd. Phase one of the building expansion, to be completed May 1, encompasses a 24,000-square-foot warehouse addition. Phase two, to be finished by year-end, will provide even more warehouse and office space, although exact square footage isn’t yet finalized.

The two-phase project comes as a result of increased sales, product offerings and staff. “Business is so strong that we need more space for our team members and product inventory,” Floyd said. “We are projecting aggressive expansion throughout the next four years.”

Along with warehouse expansions, additional offices and conference rooms will be created to accommodate Girbau’s growing team. “This year, we’ll increase our labor force by 12%,” Floyd said. Similarly, Continental’s parent company, Girbau S.A., based in Vic, Spain, recently added approximately 100 new employees.

The additions will complement Girbau’s current building, which serves as the company’s headquarters for marketing, sales, training, service, warehousing and customer support.
