Industrial manufacturer Eaton Corp. has opened two new state-of-the-art data centers in Louisville and Simpsonville that showcase the company’s energy-efficient power distribution, power management, power quality and airflow management solutions.
“As a power management company, finding innovative ways to enable our customers to reduce energy costs and to use power more efficiently, effectively, and safely is central to Eaton’s mission,” said Alexander M. Cutler, Eaton chairman and chief executive officer. “Our new data centers are energy efficient by design, deploy Eaton’s most sophisticated power management technologies, and support our company’s growing data processing needs while conserving energy and water.”
The Simpsonville facility has already received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certification; the Louisville center, which is identical to the one in Simpsonville, is expected to be certified later this summer.
Each facility will employ nine workers with an average hourly wage of around $32.
Cleveland-based Eaton employs approximately 70,000 employees and sells products to customers in more than 150 countries. The company had 2010 sales of $13.7 billion.
