G&W Electric builds second facility as part of headquarters expansion

Global electric power equipment supplier, G&W Electric said this week that it has completed construction of its second facility in Bolingbrook, IL. The new building, which is next door to the headquarters on 305 W. Crossroads Parkway, will help increase the company’s manufacturing capacity to meet growing customer demand.

The main focus of the new facility is the expansion of G&W’s epoxy molding process. Epoxy is used to insulate high voltage connectors and switches.

With the growing customer demand of the Viper Recloser and Trident Switch product lines, G&W required additional manufacturing space to increase capacity and improve our overall response to market.

“We are thrilled to expand our presence in Bolingbrook,” said John Mueller, Chairman and Owner of G&W Electric. “While this expansion represents our commitment to Bolingbrook, it also represents our continued focus on listening and understanding our customers’ needs to ensure we are meeting their expectations.”

G&W Electric has called the Chicago area home since 1905. In 2012, G&W moved to its current facility in Bolingbrook after operating in Blue Island, IL for 56 years.  

G&W Electric is a long-time exhibitor at DISTRIBUTECH International, set to takes place January 28-30, 2020.
