Construction is scheduled to begin in March on a new 188,000 square manufacturing facility for The Knapheide Manufacturing Co. in Quincy, Illinois. The Korte Company was awarded the design-build contract earlier this year.

The new plant will be located directly south of the company’s existing 480,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, which was originally constructed by The Korte Company in 1995.

When completed in early 2018, the expansion is expected to create 250 new positions, including manufacturing, installation, and various support roles.

Headquartered in Quincy, Illinois, The Knapheide Manufacturing Company is a family-owned business established in 1848.  For six generations, Knapheide has provided customers with high-quality, work-ready transportation solutions.  More work vehicles on the road today carry the Knapheide name than any other manufacturer.

Knapheide partners and customers include truck and van distributors, commercial dealers, commercial fleets, fleet management companies, government entities, utilities, and end-users across a wide range of vocational segments.
