LAWRENCEBURG (October) John and Ben Craig, assisted by Ben’s children – Anna and Nathan (the fifth generation Craig to be in the family business), proudly broke ground on a new U.S. headquarters and manufacturing facility in Lawrenceburg.
The facility is a 60,000-square-foot spec building in Team Lawrence Commerce Park-West, a Select Tennessee Certified Site, and includes 20 acres. This location will include 7,500-square-foot of office space as well as parts warehousing, installation bays, and ample manufacturing space. Craig expects this facility to open by late Spring of 2019 and is projecting to employ 80+ team members over the next 5 years as Craig ramps up production for the U.S. market in Tennessee.
“It was very important to have Anna and Nathan here at today’s event because we are committed to building our business in the United States and in Lawrence County specifically. Someday we hope Anna and Nathan will return to work in this facility” said Ben Craig.
Since 1946, Craig Manufacturing has produced steel attachments for heavy construction, forestry, mining, energy and utility equipment. Headquartered in New Brunswick, Canada, Craig Manufacturing also has operations in Alberta and Ontario. The company supplies directly to original equipment manufacturers and their regional dealer networks.
