California-based Searing Industries plans to locate a new 200,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming, with estimates of employing a workforce of about 50.
The facility will produce welded steel tubing, with a state of the art tube mill and steel coil slitter. The new manufacturing facility will be located on rail-served acreage in the Swan Ranch Rail Park, a Granite Peak development. Construction has already started on the facility which is slated to be completed the third quarter of 2013, Cheyenne-Laramie County Corporation for Economic Development said.
Cheyenne LEADS partnered with Granite Peak in creating a package of incentives to assist Searing Industries with the expansion. Another incentive attracting the firm was the site’s close proximity to railroad lines such as BNSF Railway.
“We look forward to the opportunity to expand into the Cheyenne community and continuing to serve clients from the Cowboy State,” said Lee Searing, President of Searing Industries.
The company located in Rancho Cucamonga, California, operates five mechanical tube mills, a structural mill, cutting, chamfering and deburring equipment, slitting, laser capabilities and paint lines.
“We are very pleased to have Searing establish a facility here in Cheyenne, adding to our growing manufacturing sector,” states Randy Bruns, CEO of Cheyenne LEADS. “As a family owned and operated business, Searing is a good fit for Cheyenne and I think Cheyenne will be a great fit for Searing.”
