St. Augustine, Florida – Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CarlisleIT) has confirmed plans to expand their manufacturing facility in Franklin, Wisconsin to accommodate its growing aerospace business. The $3 million, 30,000-square-foot expansion is expected to add an estimated 31 full-time jobs.  

CarlisleIT has leased the current 48,480-square-foot facility since acquiring electrical and structural manufacturer ECS in 2009. ECS had previously occupied the facility for 23 years. CarlisleIT has just purchased the property and will begin construction in November 2015 on its 30,000-square-foot expansion of this site to accommodate nearly $4.3 million worth of new manufacturing equipment.

“We are excited to announce the expansion of the Franklin facility, which truly is a testament to the hardworking, dedicated employees we have here. With the expansion of the building, CarlisleIT can continue to focus on designing and manufacturing innovative, high performing structures and components that the aerospace industry has come to rely on,” stated John Berlin, President of CarlisleIT.

The Franklin plant is one of twelve CarlisleIT locations worldwide manufacturing high performance interconnect solutions for the commercial aerospace, military and defense electronics, industrial, test & measurement and medical industries. Core products made in the Franklin location include highly-engineered wire and cable assemblies and wire harnessing, as well as aerospace support structures, antenna adapters and doublers.
