Eaton has broken ground on the expansion of its Nacogdoches, Texas manufacturing facility. The company will invest $100 million into the project, which will double production capacity of Eaton voltage regulators and three-phase transformers. The new 200,000-square-foot expansion, which will generate 200 new jobs for the surrounding area, will also free up capacity at its largest Wisconsin manufacturing facility. The company will invest an additional $22 million in equipment to increase manufacturing capacity of three-phase transformers at its Waukesha facility.
In a recent quote, Guillaume Laur, Eaton senior vice president – Power Delivery and Regulation, said, “Utilities across the U.S. are modernizing critical infrastructure to accelerate a smarter grid and clean energy future. Our solutions are vital to make these projects a reality, and we’re making steady investments to support our utility customers.”
