Kohler expands generator manufacturing plant

Kohler Power Systems has completed construction of a 105,000-square-foot addition to the company’s generator manufacturing plant in the Town of Mosel, north of Sheboygan.

 

Herb Kohler, chairman and chief executive officer of Kohler Co., opened a ribbon-cutting event for the addition this week by thanking employees for their hard work and perseverance during the project.

President and chief operating officer David Kohler cited the growth of the company’s power generation business in all major markets.

“We are driving our growth through a focus on quality, innovation and service, and that success is allowing us to invest in our Wisconsin operations,” David Kohler said.

The extra square footage at the plant expands storage for product parts and related materials and increases production capacity with an additional 140 tons of crane capacity to enable easier loading of large generators after production for transport.

Additional associates are being hired at both the Mosel plant and the company’s other generator manufacturing plant in Saukville, Wis., as part of this production expansion, with a projected increase of 300 workers within the next few years.
