Eaton Cooper Power Systems is looking to expand in Waukesha on 2300 Badger Drive, and the Waukesha Plan Commission is being asked to review final plans for the project at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Cooper Power Systems is looking to expand by 51,774 square feet, according to the city’s Plan Commission agenda. The $54 million investment is expected to create up to 200 jobs in the area, according to a news release from Cooper Power Systems.
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation is providing up to $1.36 million in tax credits for the project, the news release states. Construction is expected to be concluded in mid-2016.
“Waukesha and the Milwaukee area offer a highly skilled workforce and play a vital role in the continued success of Eaton’s business,” said Clayton Tychkowsky, president of Eaton’s Cooper Power Systems Division. “This investment and expansion will provide new manufacturing technology and enhance our regional manufacturing capabilities to help us meet the increasing demand for our products by utility, commercial and industrial customers.”
