Power management technology company Eaton is expanding its Greenwood County operations with the addition of 30 new jobs.

"We're proud to continue to be part of the Greenwood County community and join other notable manufacturers in this industrial corridor," Glenn McLean, manager of Eaton's Greenwood plant, said in a news release today.

Eaton offers services for the electrical, vehicle, aerospace and utility sectors and manufactures products for electrical, hydraulic and mechanical power.
