Spanish Turbine-Maker Announces Milwaukee Plant
MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Spanish manufacturer of wind-turbine generators will build its first American manufacturing plant in Milwaukee.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett made the announcement involving Ingeteam during his annual State of the City address Monday.
The Zamudio, Spain-based company will locate its North American headquarters and manufacturing facility in the Menomonee Valley.
Barrett's spokesman, Pat Curley, said it could bring as many as a couple hundred jobs.
President Barack Obama's administration recently announced that Ingeteam had been awarded $1.66 million in clean-tech manufacturing tax credits to make wind turbine generators as well as power converter and control systems in Milwaukee.
