Generac Power Systems to Expand South Carolina Operations
Generac Power Systems Inc., a global leader in energy technology solutions and other power products, announced that it is expanding its footprint and activities at its Trenton, South Carolina manufacturing, assembly, and distribution plant.
The company’s distribution capacity in the southeastern United States will be increased as a result of the move.
The expansion, which is slated to be completed by the third quarter of 2022, will add 200,000 square feet to the facility, roughly doubling its existing size, and will provide additional space for raw material warehousing and finished goods storage.
“Generac has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade and demand for our products continues to be exceptional as the combination of an aging grid and extreme weather are resulting in more frequent and longer lasting power outages, and that demand has only intensified in the last year and a half with more people needing backup power as they spend much more time at home doing everything from working to learning to shopping,” said Generac’s president and CEO is Aaron Jagdfeld.
“In further expanding our footprint in Trenton, we will be better able to meet the growing demand we are experiencing for Generac’s home standby generators and associated energy technologies.”
“Since beginning operations in South Carolina, we have quickly seen the positive benefits thanks to our dedicated workforce in Trenton and our strong partnerships with county and state leaders,” said Generac’s chief operating officer, Tom Pettit.
“By further investing in our operations in Edgefield County, we are strengthening our distribution capabilities in the region.”
In February 2021, Generac purchased the 421,000-square-foot complex at 30 Generac Way. The facility’s operations began in early July.
