New plant to bring 300 jobs to Elgin

August 28, 2009 Governor Pat Quinn helped cut the ribbon on Friday at Winergy Drive Systems.

Winergy produces wind turbine gear drives.

The company's current plant in Elgin will make gears and components. This new facility will assemble and test them.

The building was constructed with recycled steel and has energy efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems.
