Arburg expands US HQ; breaks ground in Connecticut

Arburg breaks ground in Connecticut

German Injection moulding manufacturer, Arburg, has started the expansion of its US headquarters in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, thus providing an extra 23,000 sqft of space, or over 80% to the size of the existing building to make more room for set up and acceptance testing of complete turnkey automation projects, customised specifications of stock machines and a considerably larger spare parts stock.

Friedrich Kanz, CEO of Arburg, commented on the expansion in Rocky Hill: Our business in the US developed considerably faster and better than expected in recent years. Thanks to this dynamic development, we have the delightful problem, that our headquarters, which was newly built as recently as 2015, has already met its capacity limits.

The new building will use state-of-the-art logistics and a 44 US tonne portal crane. As a result, Arburg Inc, Arburg’s US subsidiary, will also improve after sales support. Rooms will be added for customer training and technical seminars as well as 25 more offices for employees of the application, turnkey and service departments.

The existing building already offers a showroom for up to seven Allrounder injection moulding machines and a lab with two Freeformers for additive manufacturing.

Arburg, which has subsidiaries in 26 countries at 34 locations, said that the US is its most important foreign market.
