Thomson Industries Inc., a leading manufacturer of mechanical motion control solutions, intends to consolidate operations from a Connecticut subsidiary to its Marengo, Illinois, facility, which could bring more than 50 new jobs to the region. Openings exist for people with a wide range of industrial production experience, including assembly, soldering, machine operation, buying and planning. 

“The Marengo facility is the largest Thomson plant in the U.S., and we take great pride in the talented people who work here,” said Thomson President Scott Benigni. “They have contributed significantly to our steady business growth and global reputation for impeccable product quality. We are excited about adding to their ranks.”

The plant expansion is the result of moving the Thomson-affiliated Warner Linear® product line from its current location of New Hartford, Conn. Both Thomson® and Warner Linear® rod-style electric linear actuators are used to control push/pull type motion in a wide range of products, from delicate surgical robots to large, off-highway agricultural and construction equipment.

“Thomson has been an important member of the general Marengo community for more than 50 years and is known locally for being a great place to work,” said Marengo Mayor John Koziol. “The plant is already a significant contributor to the local and regional economy and we are pleased they continue to strengthen their commitment to the area. We congratulate them on their continued business success and welcome the new operations to Marengo.”
