AURORA, CO – Looking to improve its U.S. operation's footprint to ensure competitiveness and sustainable growth, Kärcher and the Aurora Economic Development Council are teaming up for a new Region North America headquarter facility near Denver, Colorado, which is due to open in September 2019.

The new 380,000 square-foot facility will be Kärcher owned and designed.

"Innovation is top of mind with Kärcher's plan to optimize advanced manufacturing capabilities, with new technologies such as digital and automation where appropriate," said Javier Gonzalez, CEO Region North America. "In doing so, it will also position us for future innovation and growth/expansion, not just US but globally."

The move will position Kärcher to operate more effectively and efficiently in terms of production, distribution, quality and purchasing. It will also allow for improved customer experience with regard to quality, availability, visibility and support. It maximizes operational assets and capabilities.

Specifically, it will optimize the work/production flow and manufacturability, maximize utilization of assets, and allow Kärcher to remain efficient in manufacturing in order to be competitive in the market with cleaning solutions.

The new location is testament to the investment Kärcher is making with its US manufacturing initiatives and customer offerings. The move from Camas, Washington and new build will consolidate and capitalize on engineering resources and operational excellence for the company and its customers.

"We're thrilled to be welcoming Kärcher into the community as a partner,” said Wendy Mitchell, president and CEO of AEDC. “Aurora is a prime location for global companies to grow because of the connectivity that the City can offer through its proximity to DEN."
