Tognum Expanding Aiken Plant
Tognum will expand its Aiken Plant for MTU engines and add 20 new jobs over the next two years, the company said. The US$40 million expansion project follows Tognum’s initial commitment of US$45 million in plant renovations and expansion, and is part of the company’s ongoing plans to increase its footprint in North America. The company maintains facilities and offices throughout the U.S., and is also in the midst of an international plant expansion program.
Expansion plans for the MTU Aiken Plant include two new research and development buildings that will house engine test equipment, as well as additional visitor and employee parking areas. Construction has already begun, and Tognum America Inc., an American subsidiary of Tognum AG, expects to complete the new facilities by the end of this year.
In addition, Tognum plans to fill 20 new full-time positions at the Aiken Plant as a result of this expansion. The company has already surpassed its initial plan of 250 employees, which were expected to be in place by 2014.
