An Illinois-based company that manufacturers heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems has announced plans to open a new factory in San Antonio, Texas. Meanwhile, another HVAC company has broken ground on a new plant in Maryland.

In Texas, Bergstrom Climate Systems plans to invest $5 million and hire approximately 75 new workers for what it called quality manufacturing jobs to make HVAC systems for trucks, buses, off-road and agricultural vehicles, according to My San Antonio.

The company said that it chose San Antonio because of its close proximity to Mexico, where a number of its clients are based. The new plant is slated to open in September.

In Maryland, Knorr Brake Corporation, which also manufactures HVAC systems for the transportation industry, recently broke ground on a new $15 million facility on a 24-acre site in Westminster, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Knorr Brake, which is a division of the Germany-based Knorr-Bremse AG, currently employs 230 workers at its existing site in Westminster and said it would hire another 60 workers to handle additional orders for a new series of rail cars for the Washington public transit system once the new plant is open in early 2013.
