Ampco Pumps planning expansion

GLENDALE - Glendale-based Ampco Pumps plans to break ground next May on an expansion which will nearly double its headquarters and could possibly mean the addition of 30 jobs.

The company recently bought a little over four and a half acres adjacent to its current operation for expansion. The city has granted the approvals needed for the project. The company makes pumps for the food and beverage industry and the water desalination market.

It's been open for six years and its staffing level is four times as big as when it opened. The current office area will be demolished and converted into warehouse and storage space.
