Liberty Pumps broke ground this afternoon on a $13.5 million project, its third expansion since 2000.

Board Chairman Charlie Cook called the project "another huge step forward for our company."

The 107,00 square-foot expansion is anticipated to support 30 new jobs at the family- and employee-owned manufacturer.

Since opening in 1965, Liberty Pumps has become a leading manufacturer of sump, effluent, and sewage pumps and systems for residential, commercial, municipal, and industrial applications in the United States.

Upon completion, Liberty Pumps will have approximately 350,000 square-feet of facilities at the Apple Tree Acres industrial park in Bergen.
