A Harrow forklift manufacturer officially began construction on its new production facility in Harrow on Wednesday.

Sellick Equipment held a ground-breaking ceremony at its 5.2-hectare, or 13-acre, site on Rosenborough Road. 

When complete, Sellick will move from its nearby, 80,000 sq. ft. plant to the 120,00 sq. ft. facility.

The new plant is expected to open some time in 2017 and Sellick expects the new space to increase both productivity and opportunity to bring in more workers.

"In order to compete on a global scale, we really need to expand and build this state-of-the-art-plant," said company CEO Howard Sellick.
