Taco May Soon be Hiring for Manufacturing Jobs in Rhode Island

Posted on August 10, 2010

Taco, which manufactures heating, ventilation and air-conditioning components, is planning an expansion at its Cranston plant and may soon be hiring for manufacturing jobs in Rhode Island.

President John Hazen White Jr said he does not anticipate significant hiring at this time, but a few here and there may be needed.

They are planning a major renovation and expansion for their plant on Cranston St. in RI.

White said project will allow the company to remain in its present facility, originally a trolley depot and maintenance center that dates to around 1900.

The company has close to 400 employees currently.

About 47,000 sq feet of new space will be erected for classrooms, laboratories, conference rooms, and computer labs. Training and education is a key component of Taco’s mission.

White said they had run out of usable space and needed to expand.

The project will take about 18 months and will begin at the end of the year. The company is committed to staying in Rhode Island, and this expansion boosts that commitment.

An additional 4,600 sq feet in the factory will be created for manufacturing purposes.
