The largest provider of commercial cleaning devices in the world has announced plans to build a combined headquarters and manufacturing facility in the city of Aurora.
Karcher North America wants to put up a modern 380,000 square foot facility on a 23-acre currently vacant site just to the north of the Aurora Highlands Master Planned Community.
The new facility will serve as the company’s North American headquarters, which is currently located at 4555 Airport Way in Denver.
Plans call for the building, which will also be used as a Karcher staff training facility, to include up to 75,000 square feet of Class A office space.
The more than 80 year-old company, which manufactures a wide variety of home and garden products, vacuums, hot water heaters, floor scrubbers and cleaners, among other items, is expected to spend at least $50 million building its new location.
Because the office and plant will be going up in a designated “Opportunity Zone,” Karcher will also be eligible for future capital gains tax breaks.
If all goes according to plans, construction on the new Karcher building will launch early next year, with a fall 2019 target completion date.
