ChemQuest Inc. broke ground in May on a 23,016-square-foot building expansion of its manufacturing and warehouse facility located at 21365 Hamburg Avenue, Lakeville, MN. The $1.7 million expansion will include 600 square feet of new office space and 22,416 square feet of additional warehouse space. The existing two dock doors will be expanded to four and a second drive-in dock space will be added.

ChemQuest currently operates out of two owned facilities and one leased 5,000-square-foot warehouse space. The expansion will eliminate the need for the leased space, creating greater operational efficiency. The expansion allows for increased manufacturing capacities to keep up with the continued growth of existing and new customers. The project is on schedule with anticipated completion at the end of September 2018.
