Federal Signal Corporation Expands Streator, Illinois, Manufacturing Center
The major product lines manufactured at the Streater plant include sewer cleaners, vacuum trucks and hydro-excavators. Overall, the expansion will add approximately 100,000 square feet to the existing facility. Construction is expected to begin in the first half of 2019, with completion of the first phase of the project targeted by the end of the year. The project is expected to increase Vactor's production capacity and add up to 90 additional jobs.
"With the continued momentum we are seeing with our "safe-digging" initiative that utilizes vacuum excavation technology over more invasive digging techniques, and with benefits from recent new product enhancements to our sewer cleaner lines, we see significant growth opportunities for Vactor, and for Federal Signal," said Jennifer L. Sherman, Federal Signal's President & CEO. "This investment will add the necessary capacity in response to that growth potential. It also is a testament to the talented and dedicated workforce that we are fortunate to have in the Streator area."
As an incentive, the Company received assistance and support from the State of Illinois, the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity, the City of Streator, and the Greater Livingston County Economic Development Council.
