Superior Boiler will relocate its Richmond, Va., subsidiary to Hutchinson, Kan., beginning in the second quarter of 2021. Superior acquired the Richmond business, which produces industrial watertube boilers, as part of its 2016 purchase of English Boiler LLC.
Superior employs approximately 150 people in Hutchinson and Richmond. All 30 employees who work in Richmond will be offered positions in Hutchinson, and the company expects to add more than 50 jobs in Hutchinson over the next three to five years. The Richmond subsidiary will move into a 73,000 ft2 building Superior purchased last year in Hutchinson’s Airport Industrial Park.
According to Superior, Hutchinson became the clear choice for relocation because of the facility available, the assistance provided by state and local governments and the ability to combine resources with its current business operations.
