We sincerely appreciate the support from the State of Texas, the City and County of Nacogdoches, and the Nacogdoches Independent School District, which were driving factors in the investment decision. Most importantly, our Eaton team members are the foundation of our operation, and we are excited to create 218 new positions in Nacogdoches, growing our Eaton team in Nacogdoches to more than 625. When fully operational, the expanded facility in Nacogdoches will have a more than $500 million in annual economic impact.” […]

[…] The expansion of Eaton’s Cooper Power Systems location in Nacogdoches is a major win for hardworking East Texans, bringing hundreds of good-paying jobs and millions in capital investment to the community. Growing Texas’ capabilities in this industry supply chain and investing in energy infrastructure is critical to cementing our state’s position as a global energy leader.
