Attending the event were Wisconsin State Senator Julian Bradley as well as Franklin Mayor Steve Olson, who showed his gratitude to S&C for bringing more jobs to Wisconsin residents. “The city of Franklin is honored and thrilled to help support S&C’s mission to keep the power on around the world with products made right here in our own community. We’re grateful for S&C’s continued investment in the city and for being a high-tech employer for our residents,” said Olson.
“We are excited to add to the S&C team with members from this great community,” said Anders Sjoelin, S&C president and CEO. “The city of Franklin has played an essential role in S&C’s growth, and this expansion will optimize our internal collaboration and ability to develop innovative solutions for our customers. This is critical to support electric utilities through the energy transition and meet the increasing demand for reliable, resilient power both here in Wisconsin and across the world.”
S&C initially put down roots in Franklin in 2002 with a 40,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, which has also grown significantly with a previous expansion in 2012. The 2022 expansion reflects a $20 million investment that allows S&C to meet increased product demand and its internal growth goals while also advancing world-class, integrated manufacturing.
Beyond its presence in Franklin, S&C also maintains U.S. manufacturing facilities in Chicago and West Palm Beach, Fla.
