Thomson Expands Illinois Operation
By Chad Elmore26 February 2019
Thomson Industries Inc., a manufacturer of mechanical motion control solutions, is consolidating operations from a Connecticut subsidiary to its Marengo, Ill., facility, bringing more than 50 jobs to the region.
“The Marengo facility is the largest Thomson plant in the U.S., and we take great pride in the talented people who work here,” said Thomson President Scott Benigni. “They have contributed significantly to our steady business growth and global reputation for impeccable product quality. We are excited about adding to their ranks.”
The plant expansion is the result of moving the Thomson-affiliated Warner Linear product line from its current location of New Hartford, Conn. Both Thomson and Warner Linear rod-style electric linear actuators are used to control push/pull type motion in a wide range of products, from delicate surgical robots to large, off-highway agricultural and construction equipment.
Openings exist for people with a wide range of industrial production experience, including assembly, soldering, machine operation, buying and planning.
