Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, is pleased to announce that they have won North County Incorporated’s 2015 Business Development Award. This award is given to individuals, organizations or businesses whose efforts positively impact the economic development and business climate of the North County area.
The St. Louis Economic Development Partnership nominated Watlow for this award because of the company’s commitment to the region. Recently, Watlow began transforming its headquarters in Maryland Heights, MO into an Advanced Technology Center (ATC). The ATC is a $30 million investment for Watlow. There will be 30,000 square feet of new construction, 56,000 square feet of renovation and they plan to add 50 research, development and advanced manufacturing jobs over the next five years. The company broke ground in the fall of 2014, and completion is expected in the fall of 2016.
“The North County area has been home to Watlow for over 65 years,” said Peter Desloge, Watlow’s Chairman, CEO and president. “The area has so many natural advantages for Watlow given its centralized location within the St. Louis metro area. It’s also a place that many of our team members call home. We are happy to contribute to its success.”
