Reinke Inc. to add $10 million production facility

ReinCoat, LLC, a division of Reinke Manufacturing, Inc., today announced plans for an addition to its production facilities that will include a new state-of-the-art galvanizing facility at Reinke headquarters in Deshler.

An investment of approximately $10-million is being made for the development of this highly automated, environmentally-friendly facility, which is expected to add up to 30 jobs to the rural Thayer County area economy.

Groundbreaking and construction on the 35,000 sq ft structure is set to begin this summer, with completion expected by year end.

“Reinke has long been committed to providing producers worldwide with superior products, with a focus on keeping our plant and the jobs it creates in rural Nebraska,” said Reinke President Chris Roth. “We couldn’t be happier to be able to make this investment in our community and in our manufacturing capabilities. Our product is used in rural America, and we are committed to manufacturing our product in rural America.”

The new facility will allow Reinke to bring all of its galvanizing operations in-house under the ReinCoat division. The company will be using the services of Western Technologies, Inc., based in Tulsa, Okla., for the planning and development of the facility.

Western Technologies specializes in plant design, engineering and the manufacture of durable and energy efficient equipment for the after-fabrication hot dip galvanizing industry.

Reinke has operated in rural Thayer County since it was founded in 1954.
