Greenworks Commercial, the provider of battery-operated outdoor power equipment, has announced plans for a new manufacturing, research and development, product testing and customer experience center in Morristown, Tennessee. The $20 million initial investment will create hundreds of new jobs for the area beginning next year, the company reports.
The Greenworks Commercial Center of Excellence will include a 181,000-square-foot manufacturing facility producing commercial ride-on vehicles and mowers as well as the company’s commercial-grade batteries. The campus will also include a 20,000-square-foot customer experience center located on 30 acres of green space, which will be utilized for dealer training and events plus product development and testing.
“Greenworks is proud to have led battery-powered innovation for years, and this new facility will allow us to continue to lead the industry in creating the best, most durable and most eco-friendly commercial power equipment in the world,” says Tony Marchese, Greenworks Commercial vice president of sales and operations. “We’re excited to make this investment in U.S. manufacturing, ushering Greenworks Commercial into a new era.”
The Greenworks Commercial factory is expected to open in early spring of 2022, and is set to employ more than 200 new workers, states the company.
