UNITED GRINDING Building New Facility

UNITED GRINDING North America, Inc. has closed its Fredericksburg, VA, office and has moved operations to its headquarters in Miamisburg, OH.

"This tactical move is part of an overall strategy designed with the customer at the forefront," said Theodore Neckel, Director of Corporate Marketing for UNITED GRINDING North America. "We pay very close attention to the voice of our customers, and they have expressed a need for a faster response time and complete turn-key, life-cycle solutions. With all our operations under one roof, we will streamline our services and enhance the UNITED GRINDING business experience for our customers."

Previously, United Grinding had two locations, its headquarters in Miamisburg and the other in Fredericksburg, VA. While the Ohio facility housed surface, cylindrical and profile grinding business units, the Virginia facility served the tool and cutter grinding machines and measurement systems sectors. Field service representatives were based out of both locations.

UNITED GRINDING's North American market has grown substantially over the last 15 years, and the strategic outlook for the foreseeable future encompasses even more significant growth, including the construction of a new headquarters in Miamisburg. Many of UNITED GRINDING North America's Fredericksburg-based staff have relocated to Ohio, work from home offices or have been deployed geographically closer to customers.

According to Stephan Nell, CEO of UNITED GRINDING Group AG, the decision to build a new facility that houses both Fredericksburg and Miamisburg locations was easy. "Our customers will see enhanced customer-centric activities, but also a boost in operational agility," said Nell. "We will expand parts, rebuild and retrofit, automation and preventive maintenance offerings in the North American market."

"The consolidation of resources also further increases efficiency company-wide along with support synergy across UNITED GRINDING's various product lines," said Rodger Pinney, CEO and Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors at UNITED GRINDING North America. "The move is a key component of our new corporate strategy of sustained growth and market share strength we first introduced in 2012."

The new UNITED GRINDING 110,000-square-foot facility will reside on approximately 15 acres of land near Ohio Interstate 75 and the rapidly expanding Austin Landing area of Miamisburg. The completion date is scheduled for September 1st, 2017.

During the interim time of the Fredericksburg office closing and the new facility opening, the current Miamisburg location will house all office employees. In addition to UNITED GRINDING's current 100 employees that will move to the new headquarters, the company plans to open up 40 more jobs in the next five years.

UNITED GRINDING will host a grand opening event at its new headquarters on November 3rd.
