UNITED GRINDING North America, Inc. Opens New Miamisburg Headquarters
In just over a year after breaking ground, UNITED GRINDING North America, Inc. has officially opened the doors of its new 110,000-square-foot headquarters. The building brings the company’s cylindrical, surface and profile grinding business units as well as its automation and rebuilding departments from its existing offices in Miamisburg, Ohio, together with the staff from its tool and cutter grinding machines and measurement systems sectors who were formerly located in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
With this consolidation of its diverse product lines and customer service initiatives, UNITED GRINDING has sought further process optimization and stabilization in the name of providing exemplary service for its customers across the hemisphere. “We’re sending a strong, powerful message to the market and our customers that UNITED GRINDING is investing in the future,” said the company’s President and CEO, Steve Jacobson. “This new facility, with all its productivity improvements and attention to detail, is the best way to build upon the partnerships we’ve developed and bring innovative services to our customers in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.”
The building’s innovative design is one that will further enhance efficiency, strengthen customer service and boost operational agility. “Our customers have expressed a need for faster response times and complete life-cycle solutions,” said Dr. Michael Gebhardt, UNITED GRINDING Group’s project leader for the new headquarters and Vice President of Operations. “To that end, we designed a building as advanced as our machines, engineered for precision and speed.”
Rodger Pinney, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors at UNITED GRINDING, agreed with Dr. Gebhardt, adding, “By consolidating our resources and increasing both our company-wide efficiency and support synergy, we are able to deliver an unparalleled level of customer service while creating a foundation for further growth.”
With its new facility, UNITED GRINDING has positioned itself to offer the complete grinding experience, all under one roof. Its Solutions Center provides space for comprehensive software training and demonstrations, while its streamlined rebuilding process has made it possible to reach new levels of workflow efficiency. The result is an optimized process designed to offer customers the turnkey solutions they require at the speed of modern manufacturing.
