UNITED GRINDING Breaks Ground on New North American Headquarters

On August 9, 2016, UNITED GRINDING North America held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new North American Headquarters to be located in Miamisburg, Ohio. The new facility will allow UNITED GRINDING to further strengthen its customer service and support, and boost its operational agility for even faster response to ever changing customer needs. The new 100,000-square-foot facility will reside on approximately 15 acres of land. UNITED GRINDING North America's current employees will move to the new headquarters in Miamisburg as the Fredericksburg office will close to allow for this expansion.

Currently, UNITED GRINDING North America has two locations, its headquarters in Miamisburg and one in Fredericksburg, Virginia While the Ohio facility houses surface, cylindrical and profile grinding business, the Virginia facility services the tool and cutter grinding machines and measurement systems sectors. Field service representatives are based out of both locations.

According to Stephan Nell, CEO of UNITED GRINDING Group, the new Miamisburg facility will not only further enhance customer-centric activities, but will also boost operational agility and expand parts, rebuild, retrofit, automation and preventative 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.

"This strategic move allows us to provide our customers with solutions unique to the industry," said Nell. "As a total turnkey solutions provider, we continuously look for new ways to expand our operations and business to benefit our customers and the markets we serve."

UNITED GRINDING's investment on the project will also drive economic growth in the Miamisburg area and create significantly more jobs within the next few years. The company has partnered with local government entities to help support the economy and reinforce development.

 "The City of Miamisburg is pleased to have UNITED GRINDING, a world leader in the manufacturing sector, expand its operations in the Miamisburg business community," said Miamisburg Mayor Dick Church, Jr. "UNITED GRINDING is an organization set for growth and fosters a strong business model, all positive additions to our local community."
