Generac Power Systems’ brand, Mean Green, has announced the opening of a new 100,000-square-foot facility in Hamilton, Ohio. The new space should help the company meet the increasing demand for electric-powered zero-turn mowers. The company previously produced four different commercial electric mowers and accessories at its Ross, Ohio location—about 10 miles away. The expansion will focus on increasing the production of the company’s current products, according to Matt Bieber, the president of chore products for Generac.
Functions of the New Mean Green Ohio Facility
The facility is located about 10 miles from the company’s existing operations in Ross, Ohio. It will primarily manufacture Mean Green’s ride-on and stand-on electric mowers and a range of accessories. Production has already begun at the facility, which has added over 40 jobs with around 90 total employees.
“As consumers focus on the electrification of everything in their lives, the lawn has not been overlooked. 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.”Matt Bieber, president of Chore Products for Generac
As legislation and the availability of better technology continue driving innovation, Mean Green follows several others in this expansion. Larger heavy-duty, electric-powered equipment takes a longer time to gain market share, so moves like this get our attention.
The Hamilton facility will produce Mean Green’s entire product line, including the NEMESIS zero-turn mower. This residential-targeted mower can tackle five acres on a single charge. It also has the equivalent power of a 28 HP gas mower.
Mean Green remains a particular focus of ours as they produce commercial products that can run continuously for up to 8 hours on a single charge.
