Kohler Power Systems Expanding
Kohler Power Systems has broken ground on a 100,000 sq. ft. addition to the company’s manufacturing plant in the Town of Mosel, north of Sheboygan, Wis.
“We have more than outgrown our current space,” said Larry Bryce, Kohler Power Systems president. “We expect the power generation industry and our share of the market to continue to grow. With the additional space, we will reconfigure our production lines, expand capacity and centralize production of large industrial generators at this facility.”
When the expansion is complete early next spring, the Mosel plant will focus on industrial and light commercial generators for a range of business applications including hospitals, data centers, water treatment plants, cell phone towers, and small businesses like restaurants, gas stations and convenience stores.
At the same time, the company’s plant in Saukville, Wis., will become the production facility for home automatic standby generators. In the next three years the company expects to hire 300 additional associates between its two facilities in Mosel and Saukville and its engine plant in Kohler, which supplies the engines used in Kohler’s small and mid-size generator models.
A division of Kohler Co., Kohler Power Systems is a supplier of a range of power systems products, including generators, automatic transfer switches, switchgear, monitoring controls and accessories for emergency, prime power and energy-management applications.
