Twin Disc, Inc. Racine, Wis. recently broke ground on a new facility in Lufkin, Tex. The new 50,000 sq.ft. manufacturing facility, scheduled to open in January 2020, will focus on producing power take-offs and clutches for heavy duty industrial equipment.
The main purpose of the facility is to assemble the company’s complete industrial product line and to be a distribution center for all new products coming from European operations to the United States. The facility will initially employ 20 to 30 people.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth in our business across all markets, and to keep up with the increasing demand, we need to expand our production capacity,” said John Batten, president and CEO of Twin Disc. “This facility will allow us to streamline our supply chain with a global distribution center.”
