Waukegan, Ill. -- Yaskawa America Inc. manufactured its one millionth
inverter in the United
States this month marking a significant
milestone for the drives and motion control company.

company, as it represents our commitment to building our products in the United States,”
Mike Knapek, president and chief operating officer, said. “While we are

ethic of our employees and the commitment they make to making quality products on
time for our customers.”
