Manufacturer Breathes Life Into J.C. Industrial Workforce

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).
