Eaton has announced plans to invest $150 million in an effort to increase the supply of its electrical power distribution solutions. Of that investment, $80 million has been allotted to expand its manufacturing facility in El Paso, Texas. The expansion plans include a new facility, increased capacity at an existing factory, and the creation of 600 new jobs for the area. The company hopes the expansion will allow Eaton to increase production of its circuit breakers, switchboards, panelboards, and other assemblies. Expansions will also occur at Eaton’s plants in Beaver, Pennsylvania; Juarez, Mexico; Arecibo, Puerto Rico; and Haina, Dominican Republic.
In a recent quote, Mike Yelton, president, Americas Region, Electrical Sector at Eaton, said, “Eaton solutions are at the heart of electrical systems everywhere and are vital to accelerate complex infrastructure projects for buildings, healthcare facilities, data centers, industrial facilities and utilities. The latest investment in regional manufacturing reflects our commitment to respond rapidly to unprecedented customer demand and the tremendous abilities of our longtime employees and channel partners.”
