Electric, Zero-Emission Machines Drive Growth in the Commercial Electric Mower Market
WAUKESHA, Wis., Dec. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Mean Green, a leading battery-powered, commercial-grade turf care manufacturer and a Generac Power Systems (NYSE: GNRC) company, today announced the opening of a new facility in Hamilton, Ohio to meet the growing interest and demand for electric-powered, zero-turn mowers. The new facility, located in Butler County, is approximately 10 miles from the company's existing operations in Ross.
The new 100,000-square-foot facility will focus on manufacturing Mean Green's ride-on and stand-on electric mowers, as well as a comprehensive line of accessories. Production is already underway, with more than 30 jobs added with the new opening and plans to hire more than a dozen additional team members by the end of 2022.
"As consumers focus on the electrification of everything in their lives, the lawn has not been overlooked," said Matt Bieber, president of Chore Products for Generac. "Mean Green Mowers has led the charge for cleaner, environmentally friendly, commercial-grade mowing solutions since our start in 2009, and we're excited to further expand our operation and continue supporting our customers with quality commercial-grade products that deliver electric power that lasts all day."
The expansion supports the trend of the lawn and landscape market to focus on heavy-duty, electric-powered equipment. The Hamilton facility will manufacture the full line of Mean Green products, including the new NEMESIS zero-turn mower, which can cut up to five acres on a full charge and offers the power equivalent of a 28 HP gas mower.
