June 17, 2020

HODGES, S.C. … Power management company Eaton today announced its agreement to purchase a new facility in Hodges, South Carolina, establishing a new home for Eaton’s busway product line currently spanning three facilities across Greenwood County. The investment in the new facility will consolidate operations to one location to support accelerated growth of this comprehensive portfolio of power distribution and control equipment solutions used in hospitals, data centers, factories, and commercial, residential and industrial facilities.

“We’re proud to continue to be part of the Greenwood County community and to join other notable manufacturers in this industrial corridor,” said Glenn McLean, plant manager. “The opportunity to move into a new facility that will enable us to continue to expand and grow is exciting. We’ve been searching for a new location for some time now, and the Greenwood community has helped make it a reality for us. We are confident the Hodges location will allow us to better serve our customers.”

Over the next 12 months, Eaton will transition its busway operations from the current facilities to the new facility, located at 5502 Highway 25 North in Hodges. The new facility features a larger floor space that provides a safe environment and better accommodates current and future growth. The building also offers more efficient storage and allows for continuous flow of operations to deliver improved cycle time for customers.

Eaton currently has more than 1,200 employees in the Greenwood County area.
