BG Products is getting ready to expand in a big way.

“We’ve got a couple big projects that we’re doing,” says Darin Greseth, who is chairman, CEO and president.

The company, which manufactures specialty chemicals and service equipment for automotive and industrial applications, is building a new 37,000-square-foot building in Wichita.

First, it will demolish about 6,500 square feet of existing space, which houses its auto and chemical labs, between its administration building and Kellogg.

The new building will have a new chemical lab, an automotive testing facility and a BG University sales training facility.

“We’re going to grow a little over 30,000 square feet,” Greseth says. “It’s exciting.”

BG Products also is building a 120,000-square-foot addition to its distribution center in El Dorado.

Currently, the company has a 50,000-square-foot distribution center.

Greseth says he’ll share more information along with images of what the new buildings will look like as the projects develop.
