Autoquip Celebrates Groundbreaking for New 12,000 Sq. Ft. Facility Expansion

Guthrie, OK – Joe Robillard, President of Autoquip and Chris Kuehni, Director of Operations participated in a groundbreaking celebration for new construction of facility expansion.

Construction of the 12,000 square-foot plant expansion begins today and is expected to be completed in January 2020. Plans also were outlined for renovations and upgrades to Autoquip entrances with a two-lane high capacity driveway, and several facility improvements including employee parking lot, bathrooms and break rooms.
