Eaton Corporation has opened a new plant in the Philippines whose manufactured products will serve the power management needs of IT and small and medium data centers in the Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world.
A press statement by the Dublin, Ireland-headquartered company said the plant formally opened early this April. It is located in Tanauan City in Batangas province nearby to the south of Manila.
A 29,000 square meters large facility, it will manufacture uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and other power management products for worldwide markets.
Present at the formal opening rites was Eaton chairman and CEO Alexander M. Cutler who was quoted by the press statement as saying their company's global growth strategy consists of continued investments in emerging high growth markets and regions.
The new facility is projected to employ 2000 personnel by 2017.
Eaton registered US$ 22.6 billion in sales in 2014. While its corporate headquarters are in Dublin, its Eaton Center is located in Cleveland, Ohio.
