Baldwin Filters’ manufacturing operations continue to grow in its Kearney and Gothenburg, Neb., and Yankton, S.D., facilities.

With this growth comes the need for additional space at its Kearney headquarters location. Baldwin Filters plans a Spring 2013 groundbreaking for a new 400,000-square-foot Distribution Center which will be located to the east of its Kearney facility. Distribution operations in the current 110,000-square-foot distribution center, built in 1998, have exceeded capacity, spurring the need for additional space.

The expansion will create a construction zone adjacent to and east of Baldwin Filters, and will utilize the land made available as a result of the 2008 relocation of Airport Road. With the expansion, Baldwin Filters’ corporate headquarters will encompass nearly one million square feet.

The project has received corporate approval from Baldwin Filters’ parent company, Clarcor Inc., as well as the approval of Clarcor’s board of directors.
