TRENTON — S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster and a slate of other government, community and industry leaders on Thursday helped celebrate the grand opening of a Generac Power Systems hub.

Together, the officials cut the ribbon on a manufacturing, assembly and distribution facility in Trenton that has created hundreds of jobs in Edgefield County.

“This building houses an amazing team,” said Generac Power Systems Chief Operations Office Tom Pettit. “We are proud to be here in the community of South Carolina, and proud to have so many new Generac employees join the Generac family.”

Generac makes backup power generation products for residential, commercial and industrial markets. The new 421,000-square-foot facility – awash in robotics, automation and cutting-edge digital systems – is “critical to meeting the needs of our customers” as demand increases, Pettit said.
