EL DORADO, Kansas — Automotive fluids and lubricants distributor BG Products Inc. has broken ground on a 145,000-sq.-ft. facility near its existing distribution center in El Dorado.
The structure, which is set for completion in by Sept. 30, 2019, will house its warehousing and distribution operations and a portion of production operations that will move from the existing distribution facility.
The company did not disclose its investment in the new facility, but noted that it is being built in response to rising product demand in the marketplace and a need for distribution efficiency.
Ron Garcia, BG's chief operating officer and chief financial officer, said the expansion portends a "bright future for BG."
In addition to its distribution center, BG is building a 34,000-sq.-ft. technology and training center at its corporate headquarters in Wichita, Kansas.
BG manufactures and distributes additives, cleaners, specialty lubricants and professional equipment used to service vehicles across the globe.
