Company plans to unleash new Hedgehog next month



The massive Seymour Engine Plant renovation and expansion continues motoring toward completion and soon will start making its star engine.

Production of the QSK95 — the new behemoth engine driving the $219 million expansion and creation of a new technical and office center in Seymour — will get underway next month for delivery in early August, plant manager Darren Wildman said Tuesday.

The starting date for production is slightly ahead of schedule, Wildman added Production numbers for the engine, nicknamed the Hedgehog, should reach into the upper teens to lower 20s this year as the factory hires more line workers and confirms more orders, he said.
