Generac Power Systems, a world leader in backup power and engine-powered products, opened a new distribution center in Janesville, Wisconsin.
The facility will employ 80 people in a variety of positions, including material handling, shipping, and receiving. The Janesville distribution center joins similar facilities in Whitewater and Jefferson, and measures nearly 490,000 square feet. The new location will ship service parts and finished products and consolidates several smaller operations in the area into one building.
"Our new distribution facility is part of our continuing commitment to, and investment in, the state of Wisconsin," said Shawn Fortune, Vice President, Global Supply Chain, Generac. "We're very pleased to be part of the Janesville community. When fully operational, this distribution center will support Generac's growing business by serving as a critical hub to get backup power solutions to people when they need it."
"We are celebrating 60 years of innovation and growth here in Wisconsin," said Aaron Jagdfeld, President & CEO of Generac. "The state has a tremendous workforce of diligent, hard-working people, and we look forward to continuing to be a manufacturing leader here for many years to come."
