Ventower Debuts Wind Turbine Plant

8/10/11

Ventower Industries, the Monroe, MI-based fabricator and supplier of utility-scale wind turbine towers, opened the doors yesterday to its new, 115,000-square-foot manufacturing facility with direct dock access to Lake Erie. The high-tech plant is the culmination of four years of planning that came to fruition in part thanks to local, state, and federal incentives.

The location of this new plant is key, as Ventower is targeting original equipment manufacturers and other customers throughout the Great Lakes and Atlantic regions by touting its readily accessible waterborne, rail, and truck transportation options—a legitimate selling point when you’re shipping an object as large as a utility-scale wind tower.

Ventower will begin production later this month for tower deliveries through the end of this year and during 2012.
