Generac to open new manufacturing, distribution facility

By Mike Brezonick12 February 2021

Growth in standby power generation has led Generac to plan a new facility in Trenton, S.C.

Generac Power Systems today announced plans to open a new manufacturing, assembly, and distribution operation in Trenton, S.C. The facility will support increased demand for home standby generators and associated energy technologies and serve as a distribution center to customers in the southeast part of the United States, creating approximately 450 new jobs over the next two years.

“With significant demand for Generac products across the country, we’re excited to expand our operational capacity to accommodate the increased interest in residential power systems,” said Aaron Jagdfeld, President and CEO of Generac Power Systems, Inc. “The Trenton facility is strategically located closer to our customers in the southern part of the country and has access to a local labor force capable of helping us meet growing demand while strengthening our market-leading position.”

The expansion of the company’s manufacturing and distribution capacity begins with the acquisition and upgrade of a 421,000 sq.-foot manufacturing, distribution and office facility located at 30 Industrial Park Boulevard in Trenton, located between Charleston and Columbia, S.C., Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta. The facility is expected to be operational by the third quarter and has the capability to expand further when needed.
