Lavelle Industries to expand Whitewater factory

Burlington-based Lavelle Industries Inc. announced that it plans to expand its Whitewater production facility by purchasing 2.5 acres of land adjacent to the 25,000-square-foot existing facility at 1215 E. Universal Boulevard.

Lavelle, a manufacturer of toilet repair products, plans to build a 12,600-square-foot addition to that facility. The plans were approved Monday during a joint meeting of the Whitewater Community Development Authority and the city’s Plan and Architectural Review Commission.

Construction is expected to be completed by early summer 2015. The construction project follows a similarly-sized expansion less than two years ago.

“We are pleased to be experiencing continuing growth in our Korky brand of toilet repair products,” said Deborah Scheffler, chief financial officer.
