Burleson, Texas – June 22, 2016 – The Burleson 4A Economic Development Corporation is proud to welcome Hayes & Stolz Industrial Manufacturing to the Highpoint Business Park community. “Hayes & Stolz exemplifies the vision set for the business park of providing quality manufacturing and a strong investment in our community,” said Dan McClendon, President of the Burleson 4A Economic Development Board.
Founded in 1945, Hayes & Stolz Industrial Manufacturing Company has achieved worldwide recognition as a leader in the manufacture of quality, reliable, high performance mixing and material handling equipment. “Hayes & Stolz is extremely excited about the opportunity to relocate our facility to Burleson,” said Bob Montgomery, Comptroller for Hayes & Stolz. “We are very excited about our decision to move our operations to Burleson in the Highpoint Business Park. After meeting with the City in February to explore the opportunities, it was evident that Burleson was a perfect fit for the Hayes & Stolz culture and will be an excellent ‘home’ for the business. The new facility, with almost 150,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse and administration, will provide much‐needed space for continued growth. We look forward to working with Burleson through the design and construction phases with a target date to begin full operations there in January 2018. Thank you to all the good folks at the city of Burleson for making this an easy decision!”
