Generac expanding operations in Wisconsin, adding R&D facility

Generac Power Systems Inc., a manufacturer of backup power generation equipment, said 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, both in Waukesha, Wisc.

The new technical center will be a research, development and testing facility and will include investments in equipment for data acquisition, analysis and testing of engines, generators and other power equipment.  Specifically, new test chambers containing specialized equipment for the testing of emissions, sound, and environmentally controlled conditions will enable Generac’s engineering team to enhance its knowledge and competencies in these areas.

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 should be completed by the end of 2013.
