Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corp. plans on expanding its Eaton Power Systems facility at 2300 N. Badger Drive in Waukesha.
The project will allow it to increase production of regulators and transformers, improve production efficiencies and reduce costs, the company said. It will also allow the company to move operations from two other nearby locations into the Badger Drive building. The two facilities, located on North Street in Waukesha and on Hickory Street in Pewaukee, will be closed and sold.
The expansion and consolidation will eliminate 30 positions, though impacted employees will receive a severance package and will be invited to reapply for another position, according to Eaton.
Contractor: Berghammer Construction Corp.
