Kohler Power Systems has expanded its generator manufacturing plant with a 105,000 sq. ft. addition at its facility in Mosel, Wisconsin, US.
The added space, which brings total facility size to half a million square feet, is aimed to increase production capacity with 140 tons of crane capacity to allow easier loading of large generators after production for transport and to storage more components.
“We are driving our growth through a focus on quality and service,” said David Kohler, president and chief operating officer of Kohler.
Additional staff will be hired at the Mosel plant and the generator manufacturing plant in Saukville, Wisconsin, which will reconfigure its production lines and focus solely on producing Kohler’s 8- to 20-kW home standby generators in the future. The residential power market has increased in recent years as the frequency of power outages has risen due to severe weather and an aging power grid.
