Congratulations to Noel Davis as he launches a wind turbine assembly plant in Indiana
ManufactureThis has previously reported on the story of Noel Davis, a retired Navy officer who has been looking to build a wind turbine components plant in Indiana. Well, we have some good news-- Davis' firm, Vela Gear Systems LLC, will be building a manufacturing plant in Marion, Indiana that is projected to create 163 new jobs by 2013.
Vela Gear, which was founded by Davis and several other veterans of the gear making industry in the U.S., will be among the only U.S. manufacturers of large scale gears for wind turbine assemblies. Davis says that Indiana is an ideal location for the company "due to the high-skilled workforce, and a central location close to a variety of North American customers."
