For more than three decades, electrical contracting company Gaylor Electric has had a strong presence in Noblesville, and on March 22, company officials broke ground on the business’ next chapter.
In the coming months, the Gaylor Electric campus at 17225 Kraft Ct. will expand by approximately 50,000 square feet by adding a new production innovation center. The facility will be built just east of the existing Gaylor Electric headquarters, across Kraft Court.
The new building will house a 33,000-square-foot fabrication and engineering innovation center, 40 offices and multiple conference rooms.
“This company has seen exponential growth in the past five years,” said Chuck Goodrich, president and CEO of Gaylor Electric. “We’re excited to expand the campus and provide a space to focus on engineering and fabrication innovation. This needed expansion is a result of our continued commitment to providing reliable resources, reliable outcomes and reliable insights.”
In addition to the new offices and warehouse space, there will be three classrooms built for an alternative learning center, to be called The Crossing. The Crossing is an accredited high school program that offers at-risk youth the opportunity to work toward their high school diploma.
“My mission has always been to ensure that our future workforce has access to the right tools, knowledge and education to succeed,” Goodrich said. “In combination with classroom curriculum, our students also receive hands-on training in our fabrication shop. At the time of graduation, these young individuals leave with a wealth of construction knowledge that readies them for a future career.”
Curran-Architecture and Shiel Sexton Construction Co. have been contracted to build the project.
