Graepel North America Expands Sarpy County, Nebraska, Operations Center

03/31/2015
Graepel North America recently celebrated expansion of its operations center in Sarpy County, Nebraska. The company’s new 45,000 sq. ft. facility houses equipment used in the manufacture of products for top companies, including John Deere, Claas, Caterpillar, Kenworth, Peterbilt, and Freightliner. It employs nearly 30 manufacturing specialists.

“This company has experienced amazing growth since opening its first North American facility here,” said Governor Pete Ricketts. “It embodies all of the characteristics that we strive to achieve in attracting new and expanding companies to make Nebraska home: quality, integrity, innovation, and a stellar reputation.”

As an incentive, Nebraska Department of Economic Development awarded Sarpy County $150,000 from its Site and Building Development Fund to go toward construction of the facility, which took five months from ground-breaking to completion. The company took great care to preserve the integrity of the greenfield land on which the building is located, and included an internally-constructed tornado shelter to provide extra protection for employees working within Nebraska’s “Tornado Alley.”
