Big changes are in store for Mountain Power Hydraulics, one of Mt. Lake’s top new employers.
The company’s owner and president Loren Mifek recently announced plans for a 40,000-square-foot expansion at its Mountain Lake plant.= The expansion nearly doubles the current 25,0000-squarefoot plant and will cost an= estimated $1.8 million.
Mifek said the goal is for the addition to blend seamlessly
with the current structure. Construction will occur on the building’s east side. Mountain Power Hydraulics builds hydraulic cylinders.
It has built a strong nationwide base of repeat customers.
Project brings jobs Mifek declined to get into details, but told the Observer- Advocate construction will begin as soon as the ground thaws, in the spring of 2014.
He added that the project should be finished about six or seven months later.
“The expansion will allow the company to expand its local workforce by as many as 15 employees, streamline production and accommodate our growing space needs,” Mifek explained.
He added that all of the new positions will be full-time. Hiring is expected to occur five or six months after construction begins. The plant currently employs 26 workers.
