Eaton Corporation Expands Nacogdoches, Texas, Voltage Regulator Plant
The company will invest in their manufacturing facility for voltage regulators, Cooper Power Systems LLC.
"Eaton is making a $100 million investment to expand our Nacogdoches, Texas operations and respond to the unprecedented need for critical power distribution infrastructure to support electrification, grid modernization, and resilience," said Eaton Senior Vice President Guillaume Laur. "The investment doubles Eaton’s production capacity of voltage regulators and three-phase transformers. The strong labor market and partnership with the Nacogdoches community helped guide our decision to invest here and continue our decades-long commitment to manufacturing in East Texas. We sincerely appreciate the support from the State of Texas, the City and County of Nacogdoches, and the Nacogdoches Independent School District, which were driving factors in the investment decision. Most importantly, our Eaton team members are the foundation of our operation, and we are excited to create 218 new positions in Nacogdoches, growing our Eaton team in Nacogdoches to more than 625. When fully operational, the expanded facility in Nacogdoches will have a more than $500 million in annual economic impact."
As an incentive the Texas Enterprise Fund provided a grant of $1,962,000 to assist the firm in its expansion.
"Texas’ unmatched business climate, highly skilled workforce, and reasonable business regulations encourage companies like Eaton to expand and grow operations in our state," noted Governor Greg Abbott. "The expansion of Eaton’s Cooper Power Systems location in Nacogdoches is a major win for hardworking East Texans, bringing hundreds of good-paying jobs and millions in capital investment to the community. Growing Texas' capabilities in this industry supply chain and investing in energy infrastructure is critical to cementing our state's position as a global energy leader. I look forward to the ongoing partnership with Eaton as we work to keep Texas the best place to live, work, and raise a family."
Cooper Power Systems is a subsidiary of Eaton Corporation PLC, a global technology leader in electrical components, systems, and services for power quality, distribution, and control.
