Danuser is undergoing a large manufacturing facility expansion to meet the growing demand for their products. Danuser has experienced substantial growth in the last three years and credits its market diversification and new products in expediting the rebound from the last recession.
“There’s been a lot of excitement around our new attachment, the Hammer, a hydraulic post driver,” says Glenn Danuser.
Danuser chose Septagon Construction Co. Inc. as the contractor for the expansion. Excavation started in July, and the building construction should be approximately nine months. A Butler Industrial Building, a steel frame and metal building, will add over 32,000 square feet of manufacturing space. The addition will bring Danuser’s total square footage to nearly 110,000. Management reports this is phase one of planned future expansions.
Danuser Machine Company was established in 1910 and still resides at its original location in Fulton, MO. Danuser currently employs 70 full-time employees. In preparation for continued growth, seven new jobs have already been created. Another five to 10 new jobs are expected over the next two years.
Fourth-generation sibling owners Glenn and Janea Danuser report, “We have strong roots in the Fulton community, and are very excited about our upcoming plant expansion. We have worked in partnership with Bruce Hackmann (FADC), several City employees, and the Fulton City Council, and we are thankful for the community support.”
