Twin Disc, Inc. broke ground recently on its new operations facility in Lufkin, Texas, scheduled to open in January 2020.

The new 50,000-square-foot manufacturing facility will focus on producing power take-offs and clutches for heavy duty industrial equipment. The main purpose of the facility is to assemble the company's complete industrial product line and to be a distribution center for all new products coming from European operations to the United States.

"We've seen tremendous growth in our business across all markets, and to keep up with the increasing demand, we need to expand our production capacity," said John Batten, president and CEO of Twin Disc. "This facility will allow us to streamline our supply chain with a global distribution center."

The company will look to hire 20 to 30 people in the first year with the intention to grow as business increases. Assembly workers, material control employees, and logistics specialists are some of the positions Twin Disc will seek to fill.
