MARENGO, Ill. -- Thomson Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of mechanical motion control products, intends to consolidate operations from a Connecticut subsidiary to its Marengo, Illinois, location, 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 location is the largest Thomson plant in the U.S. The plant expansion is the result of moving the Thomson-affiliated Warner Linear product line from its current location of New Hartford, Connecticut. 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.

All jobs are full-time and long term. call 815-961-0300, email For a full list of openings and online applications, visit and search under Marengo.
