Chromalox Expands Ogden, Utah, Operations

Chromalox, an electric heating technology company, part of the Electric Thermal Solutions Business of British-based Spirax-Sarco Engineering plc, plans to expand its operation in Ogden, Utah. The $58 million project is expected to create more than 150 jobs.

The facility currently produces thermal electric heating technology used for sustainable heating applications in industrial and commercial installations throughout the globe.

“Over the recent decades, our engagement with the state of Utah and particularly the Northern Weber County region has been highly effective for Chromalox,” said Armando Pazos, President and Managing Director of ETS. “We have made great strides in our quest to set the bar progressively higher for clean and sustainable energy and to meet these demands with operational excellence.”

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Chromalox, Inc. manufactures and supplies electric heat and control products for industrial heating applications in the U.S. and internationally. The company has manufacturing facilities in Ogden, Utah, La Vergne, Tennessee, Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, and Soissons, France.

"Chromalux falls in line with Weber County's economic development vision," added Stephanie Russell, Director of Economic Development & Government Relations for Weber County. "We're happy to come in and help them with one of our public finance mechanisms for their infrastructure plan, and it doesn't cost taxpayers money." The expanded facility will add over 150 good paying jobs to the area but it also will act as a catalyst for the county's plans to reduce recidivism in the county's incarcerated population.
