WAUKESHA, Wis. — Generac Power Systems Inc., a leading manufacturer of backup power equipment including residential, commercial, and industrial generators, announced that it will commit $5-6 million to expanding and remodeling its headquarters and an additional $3-4 million in upgrades to create a technical center.
“The expansion of our headquarters isn’t just a major investment in our community, it is a major step in meeting the power generation and equipment demands of our customers,” said Generac CEO Aaron Jagdfeld. “We have been growing rapidly over the last decade and this expansion will give us the flexibility and space to not only add to our team, but will create a space to allow the best engineers and technicians in our field to innovate and develop tomorrow’s technology for our industry.”
Generac currently employs more than 550 people at its headquarters, and plans to add more than 200 new jobs over the next three years. The expansion and remodel, funded solely by organic growth, is expected to be completed by the end of 2013. Looking beyond 2013, Generac has already purchased land adjacent to its Waukesha headquarters in preparation for future expansion.
