Festool recently announced that the headquarters for Festool USA and Festool Canada in Lebanon, Ind., will expand by 80,000 sq. ft. This is the second, large-scale expansion within the past three years.

Company executives cite increased demand and robust sales for the $9.3 million expansion. Construction is scheduled to begin in November 2018 and will be completed by December 2019.

“We’re excited to once again expand our facilities,” Brian Goldthorpe, Festool’s CFO, said in a statement. “The combination of increased demand for our products and favorable business conditions here in Lebanon, make this expansion a win for us as a company and for the community as a whole.”
