Tyngsboro, MA – Senate Construction Corporation of Shirley announced that it recently broke ground for a 14,000sf expansion of the global headquarters of Tyngsboro-based Jenike & Johanson, a specialist in powder and bulk solids storage.
The expansion represents about 75% increase to the firm’s current operation and will double the current engineering and advanced modelling and simulation staff. The new addition, at 400 Business Park Drive, includes enclosed space in which the company plans to expand its testing laboratory with new equipment and staff, as needed.
“We will complete the project by October,” said Bob France, president of Senate Construction. “The company will use the new space to accommodate its growth.”
Officials from local government, Senate Construction, Jenike & Johanson and Enterprise Bank, which provided financing, attended the groundbreaking ceremony.
Privately-held Jenike & Johanson’s offers “bulk-engineering services” — its engineers help clients with the storage, processing and transfer of granular solids.
