Power management company Eaton recently announced plans to expand operations in Greenwood County by the end of 2020. This new investment will create 30 new jobs and consolidate the company’s busway production operations, making a product which provides flexible power distribution solutions, into a new location.
“We’re proud to continue to be part of the Greenwood County community and join other notable manufacturers in this industrial corridor,” said Eaton plant manager Glenn McLean. “This is an exciting opportunity to move into a new facility that will enable us to continue to expand and grow. We’ve been searching for a new location for some time now, and the Greenwood community has helped make it a reality for us. We are confident the Hodges location will allow us to better serve our customers.”
Eaton currently employs approximately 1,200 people producing electrical distribution equipment, power reliability equipment and pumps and motors used primarily in hydraulics applications at its multiple Greenwood-area sites.
