Siemens Investing $54M in Its U.S. Manufacturing Footprint

Siemens recently joined President Joe Biden at the White House to announce it will invest $54 million across key U.S. manufacturing facilities that serve critical infrastructure markets.

The company, provider of power infrastructure development and deployment, is investing in its existing electrical infrastructure manufacturing hub in Grand Prairie, TX (IBEW Local 220), and a greenfield manufacturing site for electrical infrastructure and make-ready EV charging equipment in Pomona, CA (IBEW local 1710).

The investment also encompasses a soon-to-be chosen manufacturing location for EV charging equipment, spurring domestic manufacturing of Level 2 charging. This footprint expansion translates to nearly 300 new jobs with more to come across the company's regional supply chains.

"This commitment from Siemens proves the ripple effect that infrastructure investment can have to support well-paying, high-skilled jobs for workers not just in one city or state, but in communities across America," said Barbara Humpton, CEO of Siemens USA. "We continue to be encouraged by the momentum we see to not only prioritize our nation's infrastructure, but to usher in a new era of American manufacturing and technology leadership that will shape our country's future."

"The foundation has been set to jumpstart rapid progress to improve the vital infrastructure systems that power our way of life, and our investment is proof that Siemens is ready to put this progress into action," said Ruth Gratzke, President of Siemens Smart Infrastructure in the U.S. "Siemens has been supporting American infrastructure for more than 160 years, and we are now bringing the real and virtual worlds together to move our nation's infrastructure systems further into the 21st century, ensuring that infrastructure is not only resilient, but intelligent, sustainable and equitable."

The manufacturing investments include the following:

  • After experiencing continued demand for its products in key critical infrastructure markets like data centers, EVs and semiconductor manufacturing, Siemens is investing over $10 million to expand its existing Smart Infrastructure manufacturing hub in Grand Prairie, TX. The expansion will include a 25,000 sq. ft. addition, featuring a new electric-powered paint line that will help the facility reduce its carbon footprint by 90%. The over 500-person plant, which underwent a previous expansion in 2017, manufactures circuit breakers and equipment that supports essential power infrastructure in some of the country's most critical installations, including data centers, industrial sites and healthcare facilities.
  • Siemens is investing over $40 million to build a greenfield manufacturing site to replace a legacy facility in Pomona, CA. The manufacturing location will produce vital low voltage electrical equipment for industrial and commercial installations in addition to "make-ready" power distribution equipment to serve the expanding EV market.
  • Siemens will help deliver on its goal to build more than 1 million EV chargers for the U.S. over the next four years by selecting a new manufacturing site for its Made in America VersiCharge Level 2 AC series product line and additional advanced eMobility solutions. The new facility will be the company's third U.S. eMobility hub and is projected to support over 100 new jobs across the manufacturing site and regional supply chain. Siemens plans to identify a location this spring and bring the facility online shortly after.

In addition to the recently announced investments, Siemens has continued to grow its Smart Infrastructure footprint in the U.S. to meet the need for advanced infrastructure systems.

  • The Siemens Spartanburg, SC, manufacturing facility completed a three-year expansion last May, adding more than 180 new positions and 52,000 sq. ft. to one of the company's key manufacturing hubs. An integral facility for the company's Smart Infrastructure operations in the U.S., the 530-employee plant saw a need to expand its footprint due to an increase in demand from infrastructure customers across the construction, industrial and data center markets. The facility, in operation for more than 50 years, produces busway products, lighting panels and power distribution switchboards for commercial buildings and critical electrical infrastructure for applications ranging from electric vehicle manufacturing to data centers for major cloud service providers.
  • Siemens eMobility's existing EV charging manufacturing plant in Wendell, North Carolina has steadily grown to keep up with demand and manufactures industry-leading EV chargers that power clean bus fleets in cities like Raleigh, NC. To fill these high demand jobs, Siemens created a state-approved apprenticeship program at its Wendell hub in partnership with Wake Technical Community College (WTCC).
  • Russelectric, a Siemens Business, facilities in Broken Arrow, OK, and Hingham, MA, manufacture low and medium voltage power equipment for sites including hospitals, data centers and other mission critical facilities. Both manufacturing locations are adding to their employee bases to respond to growing demand for critical power infrastructure.
