Dec. 2 (Bloomberg) — Broadwind Energy Inc., a maker of
steel towers and other components for wind farms, won a $9
million order from an unidentified U.S. turbine manufacturer.

Broadwind, based in Cicero, Illinois, will produce the
towers at its factory in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, for delivery next
year, according to a statement today.

“We are nearing the end of 2014 with a solid backlog of
tower orders that sets us up with a nice growth trajectory in

statement.

The company is expected to reach almost $250 million in
sales this year and will surpass $260 million in 2015, according
to the average estimate of analysts surveyed by Bloomberg.
