Second Wind to move manufacturing to Newton
Second Wind Inc., a privately held company that makes instruments for collecting wind data, said it is relocating manufacturing operations in Somerville to a larger space in Newton.
The company's technology helps firms site wind farms and operate wind-power facilities efficiently. At 20,000 square feet, the Newton facility will be larger than the roughly 12,000 square feet of space the company operated in Somerville. The company's headquarters will remain in Somerville, company chief executive Larry Letteney said.
Letteney confirmed a Boston Business Journal report that Second Wind plans to hire 75 additional employees over the next three years. The company's current head count is 60.
