S&C Electric Company has announced an expansion plan at its Palatine plant, to meet increasing North American demand for its Grid-Resilience Technologies.

The expansion in capacity enables S&C to meet increasing demand for technology that makes the electrical grid more resilient and reliable.

In a statement, the company said it would expand its U.S. manufacturing footprint with a 275,000-sq. ft. structure in Palatine, about 25 miles from S&C’s 47-acre Chicago headquarters and manufacturing campus in Rogers Park.

The company employs 3,500 globally and more than 2,000 in Chicago, making it the second-largest manufacturer in the city.

“Chicago has been home to S&C for over 110 years, and the talent here is an essential part of our growth and success,” Anders Sjoelin, S&C’s president and CEO, said in the statement. “This expansion strengthens our commitment to U.S. manufacturing and the Chicagoland area, allowing us to better serve customers with solutions that advance a resilient, intelligent electrical grid.

“Additionally, we’re pleased to add jobs, create value, and support our local team members and communities.”

Construction is expected to be completed in early 2024.
