February 14, 2024 | By Anthony Capkun

February 14, 2024 – Eaton announced it is opening a new assembly plant in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, to meet customer demand for its fuses.

“This is the latest expansion of Eaton’s manufacturing capacity to help provide the products that are at the centre of the energy transformation that is happening across the globe,” said Rob Griffin, vice-president and general manager, Eaton’s Bussmann Division.

The new 65,000-sf facility will increase supplies of Bussmann series fuses, which are used in electric vehicles, renewable and energy storage projects, data centres, and other industrial applications.

The facility will be Eaton’s fifth manufacturing site in Dominican Republic, a country in which it has been operating for more than 35 years. The company also recently opened its first industry design centre in that country, “creating a hub for technical innovation and advancing industry education and training”.


Production at the new facility is expected to begin this year, generating about 300 manufacturing jobs.
