TEMPLE, TEXAS (September 18, 2020) – Temple Economic Development Corporation (Temple EDC) today announced the expansion of Sunbelt-Solomon Solution’s Temple, Texas facility as a result of a $2 million capital investment that will create 100 new jobs in electrical distribution.
Sunbelt Transformer began in 1981 in a 6,500-square-foot shop in Temple, Texas as a single-product company that relied heavily on selling reconditioned electrical distribution transformers. The company has grown from three employees to a large-scale operation with four brands under the Sunbelt-Solomon Solutions name: Sunbelt Transformer, Solomon Corporation, Titan Quality Power Services, and Delta Testing Services, Inc.
In an effort to reduce operating costs and maximize efficiency, Sunbelt-Solomon Solutions will close its leased facility in Georgetown, Texas and expand existing operations in Temple, Texas this fall. The existing space lacks storage and requires equipment be stored offsite. The expanded Temple location will allow for the operation of all product families in-house and will create 100 new jobs.
“As we analyzed the costs, timing, effort and employee retention vital to Sunbelt-Solomon’s operations, it became clear that Temple was the perfect solution,” says Temple EDC President and CEO Adrian Cannady. “Between affordable costs of business and living and the ideal location on the I-35 corridor, Temple offers tremendous opportunities for businesses looking to expand or relocate.”
