Southwire, Carrolton, Georgia, recently began construction of a 250,000 square foot addition to its manufacturing campus in Bremen, Indiana. Southwire started operations in Bremen upon the company’s acquisition of Coleman Cable in 2014. Since that time, the existing 476,000 square foot manufacturing campus has supported Southwire’s Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers through a broad range of wire and cable products.
“With this expansion, we will now have more capacity in Bremen to support our OEM customer base, enhance our Southwire SPEED services and better serve the commercial, institutional, factory automation, electric vehicle and telecom markets,” said David Skinner, vice president of manufacturing. “Through this addition, we are creating an agile factory that supports Southwire’s modernization efforts and overall strategic growth.”
The total investment for the new construction is approximately $46 million, and the company expects the expansion to create around 115 jobs over the next three years. The building expansion is projected to be completed by early 2021 with equipment installations to follow.
