From humble beginnings, Kent-based NiteHawk Sweepers, LLC, has blossomed into a national leader in its industry.

The company – which designs, manufacturers and sells parking lot sweepers to a wide commercial clientele – recently moved into a larger facility at 19713 58th Place S. The 28,000-square-foot complex doubles the company’s space from its original home at South 206th Street.

Part of the Alamo Group of companies, NiteHawk employs 25.

Company officials assembled for an open house June 11, inviting industry representatives, city officials and other guests to learn more about the company and its latest innovations.

According to Tracy Day, company president, the new building will help accommodate growth, increase efficiency and meet a growing demand for its products.

For more than 20 years, NiteHawk has been producing parking lot sweepers with an innovative hydraulic design. By eliminating the auxiliary engine, NiteHawk Sweepers have proven to be the most fuel efficient, environmentally conscious and cost effective to operate.

NiteHawk focuses on parking lot contractors, domestically and internationally.

The company features innovative, eco-friendly single-engine technology that dramatically reduces fuel usage, pollution and noise.

NiteHawk won the Award of Excellence in Power Sweeping from the World Sweeping Association in 2014.

The company also supports Disabled American Veterans.
