Germantown-based L.T. Hampel Corp., a thermoformed plastic manufacturer, plans to add 88,500 square feet to its 100,000 square foot facility. The expansion is expected to add 10 jobs to Hampel’s work force of 79.
The expansion is largely due to Hampel’s recent partnership with Satellite Industries, a Minneapolis-based manufacturer of portable restrooms. Satellite has taken ownership, operation, sales and marketing of Hampel’s branded portable restroom products. Hampel has been selected by Satellite as its manufacturing partner, and will produce thermoformed portable restroom components for the Minnesota-based company.
"The sale of our restroom product line is very exciting because we will continue to manufacture the global parts for Satellite, plus add Satellite thermoformed parts to our production facility," said Lance Hampel, CEO and owner of Hampel. "This allows Hampel to increase plastic forming production at a time when most companies are struggling."
