Kärcher Breaks Ground on New Headquarters
AURORA, CO — February 14, 2019 — Kärcher North America, a manufacturer of industrial and home cleaning products, is breaking ground on a new facility in Aurora, CO, near the Denver International Airport. According to Denver7 News, in addition to being the new Kärcher headquarters for North America, the campus will also be home to a manufacturing facility for Kärcher products.

According to a press release by the Aurora Economic Development Council, the new Kärcher headquarters is expected to open in September 2019.
