Construction Begins On Elliott Group’s New Facility

By DJ Slater10 December 2019

Elliott Group has begun constructing its largest capital project in the company’s history – a US$60 million Cryodynamic Products test facility. The facility, about a mile from the company’s headquarters in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, will consist of six buildings (30,000 sq.ft. [2787 m2]) on a 13 acre (5.3 ha) site.

Full construction is expected to last 18 months. When operational, the facility will generate 130 jobs, according to Elliott Group.
“This day has been in the works for over 18 months,” Elliott Group CEO Mike Lordi said during the groundbreaking ceremony, which took place on Dec. 3. “This is the result of hard work by a lot of people.”

The facility will allow Elliott, which recently added cryogenic pumps and expanders to its product line, to test and ship these products from Pennsylvania.

“We are proud of this moment,” said Ebara Corp. Chairman Toichi Maeda. “Elliott products will be shipped around the world from this location.”

Elliott signed a purchase and sales agreement in March 2018 with the Westmoreland County Industrial Development Corp. (WCIDC) for the former Jeannette Glass property (a brownfield site), which closed in 1983. The WCIDC acts as the primary marketing agent for Westmoreland County to support economic development efforts within the county. Elliott took title and possession of the property on Oct. 24, 2019 upon completion of site remediation.
