September 13, 2023 – Eaton announced it is investing $150 million to increase the supply of its electrical power distribution solutions for customers across North America.

As part this investment, Eaton is committing $80 million to “significantly expand” its manufacturing footprint in El Paso, Texas, creating over 600 new skilled jobs, opening a new facility, and increasing capacity at its existing manufacturing plant.
