ROCKWALL - Whitmore Manufacturing Co. has broken ground on a 120,000-sf expansion at 1250 Justin Rd., west of Industrial Blvd. and one mile north of I-30.

The expansion will double the Rockwall headquarter to more than 200,000 sf and will include a new corporate office area, R&D, production area for the Air Sentry division and more warehouse space. Whitmore will manufacture rail lubrication equipment in Rockwall for the North American market under the name Whitmore Rail.

Improvements will also be made to the existing production and laboratory facilities. Construction costs for the new facility are estimated at $12 million, according to public filings.

Whitmore anticipates adding 20 to 40 employees over the next three to five years. The building project is expected to be completed by summer 2013.
