Lebanon, Tenn. – Lochinvar, LLC, a leading manufacturer of high-efficiency water heaters, boilers, pool heaters and storage tanks, today announced the upcoming expansion of its world headquarters in Lebanon, Tenn.

The project will add 74,000 square feet of manufacturing and storage capacity, as well as an extended office area and a significantly enhanced engineering facility that is twice the size of the current space.
