Wind Turbine Tower Factory Coming To Iowa

NAW Staff, Thursday 11 October 2007 - 01:00:00

Hendricks Industries, owned by the Hendricks Holding Group, plans to open a 347,000 square-foot wind turbine tower manufacturing plant in Keokuk, Iowa - creating 350 jobs and more than $34 million in capital investment, according to the office of Gov. Chet Culver, D-Iowa.

"Our new location in Iowa, the heart of America's windbelt, puts our company in the perfect position to serve a market that is projected to triple production by the year 2020," says Ken Hendricks, owner of the Hendricks Holding Group.

In the past two years, three other wind energy manufacturers have chosen Iowa as the place to establish their North American production facilities - Acciona Energy, Siemens Wind Power and Clipper Windpower, the governor's office adds.
