Bystronic opened its new 165,000 sq. ft. Americas headquarters last month in Hoffman Estates, IL with a celebration and ribbon-cutting event.
The new facility is the headquarters for the Bystronic Americas region and includes new Customer Experience and Manufacturing Centers. It serves as the hub for US business operations including sales, service, training, spare parts, assembly of new Bystronic machines and refurbishing of used Bystronic machinery.
The new Experience Center will showcase Bystronic’s concept of the smart factory, demonstrating its range of sheet metal processing solutions: the latest technologies for laser cutting, integrated automation and storage solutions, flexible bending systems, tube and profile processing solutions, a software landscape that covers the sheet metal processing chain, smart services, and customized live demonstrations for customers.
With the launch of the new Manufacturing Center, Bystronic’s BySmart Fiber 3015 and 4020 laser cutting machines become the company’s first machines to be locally produced in the three major market regions of the world: North America, Europe, and Asia.
“Locating our Manufacturing Center here will allow us to assemble machines in the US and reduce the need to import them from Europe, significantly cutting delivery and shipping costs, which is an important advantage, given the current global supply chain constraints,” said Robert St. Aubin, president Region Americas at Bystronic Group. “This new headquarters and manufacturing facility is expected to accommodate the company’s projected year over year employee growth target of approximately 20 per cent for vital operations, manufacturing, administration and support, and project management.”
In May of this year, Bystronic Canada officially opened a new Experience Center in Mississauga, ON.
