VILLA RICA, Ga. - Leuco Tool Corp. has broken ground on the expansion of its administration and production building in Villa Rica, Georgia.

The tooling manufacturer said years of continuous growth resulted in the company reaching its limit in terms of available space. The modern, expanded building will house a showroom, training center, office and production areas, as well as an updated employee break room.

“Our intended goal is to captivate our industry in the U.S. and Canada with our innovative, trendsetting, and reliable tools, and services, well into the future,” said CEO Jens Schulz.

This construction project will be completed in two phases over the next year. The first phase involves renovating and adding on to the administration building, followed by expanded production and sharpening service areas.

During the official groundbreaking ceremony, Schulz emphasized the economic significance of the expansion for the company, for the employees, and for the Leuco brand in North America. The ceremony was also attended by representatives from the planning office, construction company as well as local administrators and dignitaries, including the mayor of Villa Rica, Jeff Reese, and the chairman for economic development, Christopher Pike.

Leuco relocated its headquarters from Ingleside, Illinois, to Villa Rica in 2003. Today, Leuco has more than 100 employees at seven locations in the United States.
