Kohler Co. will add more than 300 jobs in southeastern Wisconsin over the next three years, the company announced Wednesday morning.

The job creation is a result of an expansion of the Kohler-based company’s global power business. Kohler is a privately held company whose products include mobile and standby generators.

The company will add an extension to its production facility in the town of Mosel in Sheboygan County. The jobs will be added at company locations in Mosel and the villages of Saukville and Kohler, the company said.

“This investment reflects our commitment to provide homeowners and businesses with superior product and rapid delivery,” said Herb Kohler, chairman and CEO of Kohler Co.

Since 2011, the demand for standby power has surged with more than 5,000 power outages and more than 50 million homes and businesses affected in North America alone, Kohler Co. said.
