Excel Industries  recently held a ground-breaking ceremony to begin construction on a multi-million dollar facility expansion. Conco Construction has been selected to be the prime contractor for Excel’s latest facility investment.

The expansion will provide additional manufacturing space to support new product introductions as well as an upgrade to the existing paint system. The project is slated to be completed by the end of third quarter, 2019.

“The facility expansion and paint system upgrade will help position us for future growth,” said Brent E. Edmisten, V.P. of Operations, SCM and Engineering. “This investment will support our team’s efforts in providing world class products to our global customers.”

 In 2013, Excel won the Kansas Governor’s Exporter of the Year award.

Excel Industries was founded in 1960. Excel introduced the Hustler, the world’s first zero-turn mower in 1964. Excel currently manufactures zero-turn mowers and utility vehicles under the Hustler® Turf and BigDog® Mower Company brands and has a network of more than 2,000 dealers and 35 distributors worldwide.
