SPX Cooling Tech Plans Springfield, Missouri, Manufacturing Operations

SPX Cooling Tech, a full-service cooling tower and air-cooled heat exchanger manufacturer, plans to establish manufacturing operations in Springfield, Missouri. The project is expected to create more than 60 jobs.

The investment is part of a capital plan focused on incremental capacity of SPX Cooling Tech products manufactured in the U.S.

“For over a century, Marley has been the preeminent manufacturer of cooling solutions for industries that have formed the foundation of our communities,” said Sean McClenaghan, President of Global Cooling for SPX Cooling Tech. “To prepare for the next generation of growth, we’re pleased to announce that SPX Cooling Tech, with the assistance of the Department of Economic Development, is opening this new manufacturing facility in Springfield. The site will support the increased investment in data centers, semiconductor fabrication facilities, and battery and EV infrastructure throughout North America. It will also expand our manufacturing capacity while allowing current operations to further optimize our legacy products.”

SPX Cooling Tech will benefit from the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.

“We’re proud to support SPX Cooling Tech as it creates new opportunities in Springfield,” noted Michelle Hataway, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “It’s always exciting to see employers strengthening communities through investment and job creation. We appreciate our partners whose contributions to this project are helping Missourians prosper in our southwest region.”

Overland Park, Kansas-based SPX Cooling Tech, a unit of SPX Corporation, is a full-line, full-service cooling tower and air-cooled heat exchanger manufacturer.
