Machinery is humming once again at an industrial site along N. Grundy Quarles Hwy. more than two years after the site’s previous tenant, Eaton Corp., a hydraulics manufacturer, laid off its entire 93-person staff and closed its doors.
TC Remanufacturing, the new tenant of the former Eaton facility, opened its doors there recently, offering local machinists, welders and painters a good-paying job close to home. Their task? To refurbish damaged or salvaged torque converters for automatic vehicles. The refurbished parts are then sold to a 100-plus client base, primarily east of the Mississippi River (although TC Remanufacturing will go as far west as Texas and Oklahoma).
