The large facility represents a consolidation of resources, as the company’s two U.S. locations have heretofore segregated their equipment focuses.

United Grinding conducted a groundbreaking ceremony August 9, 2016, for its new North American headquarters to be built in Miamisburg, Ohio.

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 preventive maintenance offerings in the North American market.

The new 100,000-square-foot facility will reside on approximately 15 acres of land, housing the company’s current employees. United Grinding plans to create more jobs there over the next five years.

Through its JobsOhio West initiative, the Dayton Development Coalition has been working with United Grinding to assist in providing community project and incentive resources as well as support to aid in the new facility construction.

Currently, United Grinding North America has two locations: its headquarters in Miamisburg and a facility 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.

“The consolidation of resources is a strategic move to increase efficiency company-wide and support synergy across United Grinding’s various product lines,” says 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 for continued growth and market share strength that we introduced in 2012.”

United Grinding’s North American market has grown significantly over the last 15 years, and the company expects even more growth.

    If one must pick a manufacturing specialty, grinding carbide might not be the first choice because it’s perceived to be very difficult.

    Advanced grinding equipment gives this shop the flexibility and automation it needs to serve customers with either rapid-response or high-volume jobs.

  • Vertical Grinding Has Advantages

    In vertical grinding, the workpiece is held upright in a rotary chuck with the grinding spindle overhead. This configuration can improve roundness, facilitate single-setup processing and prolong the life of the machine. Loading and unloading may gets easier, too. Workpieces with relatively large diameters and short lengths benefit the most from vertical grinding.
