Demand for power generation and new energy technologies has driven growth that requires increased production


WAUKESHA, Wis., Feb. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Generac Power Systems today announced plans to open a new manufacturing, assembly, and distribution operation in Trenton, South Carolina. The facility will support increased demand for home standby generators and associated energy technologies, and serve as a distribution center to customers in the southeast part of the United States, creating approximately 450 new jobs over the next two years.


"With significant demand for Generac products across the country, we're excited to expand our operational capacity to accommodate the increased interest in residential power systems," said Aaron Jagdfeld, President and CEO of Generac Power Systems, Inc. "The Trenton facility is strategically located closer to our customers in the southern part of the country and has access to a local labor force capable of helping us meet growing demand while strengthening our market-leading position."

The expansion of the company's manufacturing and distribution capacity begins with the acquisition and upgrade of a 421,000-square-foot manufacturing, distribution and office facility located at 30 Industrial Park Boulevard in Trenton, conveniently located between Charleston, South Carolina; Columbia, South Carolina; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Atlanta. The facility is expected to be operational by the third quarter and has the capability to expand further when needed.

"We're proud to welcome Generac to the South Carolina business community and look forward to seeing all that we know they will achieve in Edgefield County," said South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster. "With a workforce at its disposal that is second to none and one of the most competitive business environments in the world, we know that Generac will have the tools necessary for success."

With this increase in production and distribution capabilities, Generac is inviting individuals seeking career opportunities at the Trenton plant to learn more about Generac on its careers webpage.
