The company says it will enhance customer support with faster response times and increased available inventory as well as provide the

company room for future growth. The building sits on a triangular-shaped lot that mirrors the shape of the Rego-Fix logo.

Rego-Fix CEO Richard Weber describes the company’s new building as “an important milestone that expresses our commitment to support the American market with Swiss high precision tools.”

Twice the size of the company’s previous location in Indianapolis, the new facility enables the company to double sales, distribution and support services under one roof as growth demands. In addition to larger inventory and office space, it includes three shipping tables to speed order processing and an enhanced training area that includes onsite machine tools to perform cutting demonstrations and application engineering services for customers.
