Generac Power Systems, a leading global designer and manufacturer of energy technology solutions and other power products, expanded its corporate operations into the Village of Pewaukee, Wisconsin. The 75,000 square-foot office building will house approximately 300 employees.
Generac Power Systems is investing more than $8 million to purchase and renovate the building. The new site, located adjacent to I-94 on Highway J, will serve as the company's new Customer Contact Center.
"Generac has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade as the combination of an aging grid and extreme weather are resulting in more frequent and longer lasting power outages, and that success has only intensified over the last 18 months with more people needing backup power at home where they're doing everything from working to learning to shopping," said Aaron Jagdfeld, president and CEO of Generac.
The company's global headquarters has been in Waukesha, Wisconsin since 1959 and will remain its primary location for corporate operations as well as research and development activities.
"As we continue to add employees to serve our customers and support our rapidly evolving business, we have outgrown our current headquarters facility in Waukesha. Expanding to this new location will allow us to continue to grow Generac to serve our customers, partners and our people, as we work to meet the incredible market demand,” Jagdfeld added.
In addition to the new location in Pewaukee, Generac opened a new plant in Trenton, South Carolina earlier this year to increase the Company's capacity to meet growing demand for Generac's home standby generators. Furthermore, within the last month, Generac opened additional offices in Denver and Boston to accommodate tremendous growth in demand for Clean Energy products.
