Liberty Pumps, a manufacturer of sump, sewage and wastewater pumps, is undergoing a major expansion of its facilities in Bergen, N.Y. The construction, which doubles the size of the current facility, will occur in three phases over the course of 2015.

Phase one –already under way and nearing completion - is 81,600 sq. ft. of additional manufacturing area. The added space will allow for new manufacturing cells, increased warehouse area for component inventory and expanded machining operations.

Phase two –scheduled for completion in May - increases the research and engineering lab, service area and features a new lunchroom facility for its members. The 14,200-sq.-ft. lab expansion allows
for the addition of new equipment required for Liberty’s recent qualification as a CSA test facility.

Phase three –a 23,000-sq.-ft. sales/marketing wing and product training center - is slated to begin construction in April with a target completion date of August.

“As our products continue to advance technically, we realize product knowledge is critical - not only to our sales team, but for those that use and install our products on a daily basis,” Liberty Pumps Vice President of Sales and Marketing Randall Waldron says. “The new product training center will allow us to better share this knowledge in a way that provides a great experience as well.”
