AYER — The local honey processing equipment company Maxant Industries is moving its operations out of Ayer and into Devens.
The Devens Enterprise Commission approved Maxant’s application for the construction of a building of about 28,600 square feet. The 3.2-acre lot at 58 Barnum Road will include parking and a small area for beehives in the back of the property, according to the DEC’s unified permit record of decision. The company is now in a 30-day appeal period.
Maxant Industries, which has been in the building on 28 Harvard Road since 1974, manufactures equipment used for processing honey.
