Economic development efforts in Delta County got a major boost last week as the Board of County Commissioners approved a specific development application by Forgeworks.

Forgeworks is a manufacturer of equipment used in the craft brewing industry. The company plans to move its operations from Ridgway and expand into a 24,000-square-foot building on B-50 Road.

Forgeworks general manager Arlan Collatz noticed the former home of drill rig fabricator Watson-Hopper sitting vacant as he drove through the county one day from Ridgway to Grand Junction.

Forgeworks' business plan calls for establishing its craft beer equipment manufacturing operation and adding a line of architectural hardware like custom hinges and doors to its activities.

The company also plans to conduct seminars on craft beer making and it hopes to get a liquor license to sell small batches of its on-site made brews.
