A worldwide company says it's bringing more than just 400 jobs to Hutchinson. Siemens builds wind turbines.
It's going to open a plant in Hutchinson. Today the company told a packed house it's big plans.
It's a coming attraction that's drawing hundreds hungry for a sneak peek.
"This site will become our showcase for wind energy in America," Siemens V.P. of Supply Chain Management Kevin Hazel said.
Siemens is an international company that dabbles in industry, energy and healthcare.
It employs more than 410,000 employees in 192 countries. Siemens is building a wind energy plant in Hutchinson - set to open in the fall of 2010.
Tuesday Hazel, who was involved with choosing the site, laid out the plan before a packed house.
"I'm really excited to be here on the ground and share it with the public," he said.
The site will manufacture the working part of wind turbines called nacelles.
The venture is expected to create roughly 430 local jobs for assembly, electrical and hydraulic workers. Even more are expected once potential suppliers move to town.
