|Lincoln Builders awarded Gardner Denver work|
Lincoln Builders of Ruston will tackle Gardner Denver Thomas' expansion project following approval by the Monroe City Council Tuesday.
Lincoln Builders submitted the lowest bid for the project with a bid of $4.85 million. Bids were opened 2 p.m. Tuesday.
City engineer Sinyale Morrison said bids came in under budget. The city anticipated the project would cost more than $5 million.
About $4 million for the Gardner Denver expansion will come from Monroe's I-20 Economic Development Fund, with the remaining portion provided by the Ouachita Economic Development Land Corp.
The city of Monroe is providing for the 81,000-square-foot expansion to Gardner Denver Thomas' Monroe facility, located in the city's industrial park.
The expansion project was part of Monroe's incentives package to bring roughly 300 more jobs to Monroe.
Gardner Denver Thomas announced in April it would consolidate and move its Sheboygan, Wis., operations to its Monroe facility. The decision to consolidate in Monroe will more than quadruple Gardner Denver's Monroe operations from roughly 70 jobs to at least 300 by the end of 2011, including new jobs averaging $37,000 annually plus benefits.
As part of the incentives package to lure Gardner Denver Thomas here, the state also committed a performance-based grant of up to $9 million for relocation expenses from the state's Rapid Response Fund.
According to Morrison, Lincoln Builders expects to have the expansion project completed within 180 calendar days.
Lincoln Builders also is the contractor for the city of Monroe's new $35 million airport terminal.
Councilman Arthur Gilmore questioned if the Ruston contractor firm could handle both projects at the same time.
Representatives from Lincoln Builders attended the meeting Tuesday. They indicated neither project would be hampered by the other.
