Satellite Industries Breaks Ground for New Addition to Plant in Bristol

Bristol, IN, September 12, 2018 – Satellite Industries broke ground today on a new 114,400 sq. ft. production facility addition with a two story 5,500 sq. ft. office in front of their existing Plant at 1686 Commerce Drive in Bristol, Indiana. The facility will be for manufacturing of its specialty trailer division, Satellite Suites™.
According to Charlie Senecal, Vice President of Satellite Suites, “We are proud to announce the expansion of our current facility. This expansion will allow Satellite Industries to open up further capacity for continued growth of our Satellite Suites Restroom Trailer Division, allowing us to better serve our customers. It will also allow for our lamination division, located in Elkhart to move and operate at the same facility. This will continue to provide employment to the citizens of Bristol and the surrounding Michiana area. Four years ago, the Suites division employed 15 team members and are now looking to employ upwards of 100 team members in the next year. The team at Nuway has been an exceptional partner in the success and future growth of our organization.”
Nuway Construction, a design/build general contractor located in Goshen, IN, was chosen for the project. According to Andy Nesbitt, President of Nuway Construction, “We built the existing facility in 2014 and we are excited to partner with Satellite again on another custom design.” The addition will be completed by March of 2019.
