LINDSAY, Neb. — Lindsay Corp. is making a major investment in its plant here.
Construction has begun on a multimillion-dollar poly plant. The company is expanding its current poly product offering.
According to a company representative, the plant is needed “to better serve our customers in corrosive and deteriorating water areas. Lindsay offers a range of solutions within its Zimmatic product line for managing corrosive water.
“Poly-lined pipe is one such solution that can significantly help protect center-pivot and lateral-move irrigation systems from the damaging effects of corrosive water, such as unwanted bacteria buildup and pipe deterioration.”
There is a large demand for poly-lined pipes, which extend the life of the pipe because they do not corrode as quickly.
The inside of the pipe is lined with poly, but otherwise the pipes look the same. The 32,000-square-foot building is going up on the north side of the property.
Bierman Contracting of Columbus is the general contractor. The facility will be completed in December.
The number of employees working in the new facility will vary depending on customer demand. There is potential for new hires.
