New Greenworks Commercial Factory in TN, USA
Greenworks Commercial Opens New TN, USA Production Facility
Greenworks Commercial has made a major shift, and it’s a shift that should excite lawncare professionals. They established their first US-based manufacturing facility in Morristown, TN. The facility boasts cutting-edge technology to produce cutting-edge, battery-powered consumer and commercials grade riding mowers. What does this mean? Increased production and availability for some of the best commercial mowers available. These include the industry-leading OptimusZ line (82V zero turn and stand-on) as well as the 60V and 80V line-ups of zero-turn and wheel-designed riding mowers.
The facility currently includes about 80% vertical production capabilities. This means that they produce many components and complete a large portion of fabrication and assembly steps in-house. Vertical production allows for costs to be better controlled and timelines to be streamlined and optimized.
The Morristown, TN facility includes automated deck and frame welding areas, a 1/2 mile powder coating line, 3 autonomous vehicle-assisted assembly lines, and 2 performance and design evaluation lines. There is a designated warehouse area as well as an outdoor testing and evaluation track.
Future plans for 2023-2024 include the installation of advanced plastic injection molding equipment. This will allow for increased vertical production as custom-designed plastic components will be created in-house. In addition, Greenworks is also planning to add a battery packing section to the facility. This will allow for raw battery components to be assembled into a finished battery on-site.
