New Rohm headquartersClick image to enlarge

Rohm Products of America has opened a 3,000 sq m (32,000 sq ft) manufacturing facility and North American headquarters in Suwanee, GA. Three times larger thn the previous facility, the plant allows Rohm to manufacture in North America for the first time, as well as expand its service and support for North American customers.

A division of the Germany-based Rohm Group, Rohm Products of America has been serving the North American metalworking industry since 1978. And, with this new facility, it now has the capacity to manufacture for the American market. The transition also enables the company to be more competitive as it can better control the product manufacturing process as well as offer improved price points.

The new facility has room to provide expanded in-house service on larger products, such as 4 meter-diameter chucks, with the aid of a 150-ft, 12.5-ton crane rail system.

Another major component of the facility is a 2,323 sq m (25,000 sq ft), air-conditioned service centre and warehouse that protects the company’s ground steel products from rust and corrosion. A demising wall runs across the warehouse, containing product inventory.

Other facility features include a state-of-the-art showroom, demonstration area, office space, conference room and employee workout room. A training classroom seats up to 30 people; the company previously offered training only at customers’ facilities. The facility also includes room for applications engineering support staff to be located onsite.
