Siemens recently opened its expanded manufacturing facility in Grand Prairie, Texas. The 225,000-square-foot, low-voltage circuit breaker and manufacturing plant will provide critical power infrastructure equipment for the global construction and industrial markets.

Siemens has hired 100 additional workers for the expanded facility, bringing the total footprint to 650 employees. These skilled technicians will support key manufacturing operations, including fabrication, wiring and assembly.

"We're using our global technology leadership to solve the nation's toughest challenges, and that's particularly true here in Texas," said Judy Marks, Siemens CEO. "Now more than ever, the industries we help power – from data centers to military installations – need safe, efficient and reliable power. And the technologies manufactured at this expanded facility will act as the critical backbone to ensure more resilient power systems."

The Grand Prairie facility manufactures critical technology that supports the safe and efficient movement of power across the residential, commercial, industrial and utility markets, including low-voltage switchgear, switchboards, power panels, molded case circuit breakers (MCCBs) and air circuit breakers.

Construction of the 50,000-square-foot expansion began in spring 2016. The expansion includes 42,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space, along with 8,000 square feet of office space. The expanded facility also features an interactive customer experience center, where Siemens will showcase its capabilities for low-voltage products, as well as innovations and products across the company's entire portfolio.
