United Grinding North America, Inc. Announces Strategic Action for Continued Success and Future Growth

MIAMISBURG, Ohio, May 24, 2017 – UNITED GRINDING North America, Inc. today announced that on July 1st, 2017, its Fredericksburg, Virginia, office will close and operations currently there will move to Miamisburg, Ohio. This strategic consolidation will further solidify the company’s aggressive initiative for continued success and growth in North America.

 

“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’ve expressed a need for a faster response time and complete turnkey, 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.”

 

Currently, United Grinding has two locations, its headquarters in Miamisburg and the other in Fredericksburg, Virginia. While the Ohio facility houses surface, cylindrical and profile grinding business units, the Virginia facility serves the tool and cutter grinding machines and measurement systems sectors. Field service representatives are 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 will relocate to Ohio, work from home offices or be 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. All of which further strengthens UNITED GRINDING Group’s standing as the industry’s leading total solutions provider.”

“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.

Be a part of the phenomenal customer experience on November 3rd, when UNITED GRINDING welcomes you to the Grand Opening of its new home located about a mile from the company’s current location.

As of July 1st, all phone calls, e-mail, and mail will be forwarded from Fredericksburg to the Miamisburg location. If you would like to update your records to include the Miamisburg information, please see below:
