Executives and over 80 local employees from Burkert Fluid Control Systems gathered on Thursday, March 26 with representatives from Mecklenburg County, the Town of Huntersville, Lake Norman Economic Development, and the growing team of local construction and engineering for ‘first shovel’ groundbreaking ceremony of Burkert’s new multi-million dollar campus on a 98-acre parcel of wooded forest and farmland in Huntersville, North Carolina.
Burkert’s new facility, a 124,000 square-foot facility, is designed by WHN+ Architects to be constructed at the greenland site on Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road. The company has engaged Edifice General Contractors to manage the construction with planned occupancy in March 2016. The company plans to invest approximately $23,000,000 and create 61 new local jobs over the next five years. The campus has room for additional construction as the company continues to grow to meet the market demands, including walking trails, a fitness center and use natural lighting and solar power where possible.
As a leader in fluid control technology, Burkert originated the first solenoid valve over 50 years ago and has kept innovating ever since. The Burkert type 2000 angle-seat valve, now 20 years young, was the first of its kind and has been often imitated, but never duplicated as a solution for tough-to-solve steam and liquid control applications. Today, Burkert continues in the quest to provide revolutionary customer-focused solutions controlling liquids and gases with the introduction of the Type 8905 Online Analysis System which strictly monitors the purity of process water before it is released back into environment and the upcoming Ozone Sterilization System, which uses patented sterilization process to guarantee sterility of connections in the pharmaceutical production process.
Employees at Burkert enjoy market competitive salary, a generous benefit package including a company match on 401k contributions, and flexible work environment.
The rapid and sustained growth of Burkert USA over the past decade is reliant upon the quality of Burkert products and systems, the experience of a technically skilled workforce, the stability of a family-owned international corporation and the commitment to re-investment in research and development targeted at solving our customer’s most difficult challenges.
