Schunk Expands U.S. Headquarters



Rendering of the 22,000 sq. ft. three story addition to the north side of the building, which will encompass a state of the art Tec-Center, training facility and more office space.

SCHUNK USA has announced the start of construction of an expansion at its U.S. headquarters that will more than double the size of existing facilities. "SCHUNK's U.S. headquarters is already the largest facility outside of Germany. This expansion will provide space for a state of the art tech center and training facility, additional manufacturing capabilities, as well as increased office space to allow SCHUNK to better serve customer needs," said a company spokesperson.

By investing in infrastructure, equipment and personnel by 2022, more than 80 new jobs will be created over the course of four years. In addition to the jobs created and the stimulus to the local economy, the manufacturing community will benefit from this resource. "The additional manpower will enable SCHUNK to provide even greater customer care and continue to meet the demands of a rapidly growing and continually evolving manufacturing industry," continued the spokesperson. "This expansion is important for us to continue meeting the needs of our customers. As manufacturing processes grow and change, SCHUNK will continue to be a leader in the industry with cutting edge technology and a focus that continually places the customer first," commented Milton Guerry, President of SCHUNK USA.

Two separate expansions will be built in phases. Initially, a 19,000 sq. ft. addition will expand the size of the manufacturing area by 150%. This will allow for greater efficiency and increased production capabilities to better respond to customer requests and specialty orders. This addition will also double the space dedicated to the successful NCTAP apprenticeship program, allowing SCHUNK to continue to train future generations of workers.

A separate 22,000 sq. ft. three story addition to the north side of the building will encompass a state of the art Tec-Center, training facility and more office space. With these facilities, SCHUNK will be able to host enhanced training programs for distributors and customers, allowing them to understand products better and improve their own applications. The Tec-Center will showcase the latest innovative technology for customers to view products in a real life application and through interactive demonstrations.

SCHUNK celebrated this milestone with a groundbreaking ceremony recently, which included remarks by Milton Guerry, SCHUNK U.S. President, and Bernd Schellenbauer, CFO SCHUNK Germany. Ed Yerha, Mayor pro tem of Cary, spoke about the importance of manufacturing in the U.S. Other guests included North Carolina State Representative Joe John, several members of the Cary Chamber of Commerce and representatives of prominent area manufacturing companies.

Construction of the expansion is expected to be completed in fall 2018.
