Share This Post

HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION has acquired a new Silicon Valley headquarters located in Fremont, California.

The 12,000 square foot Manufacturing Innovation Hub will house office space for HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION’s regional sales and support staff as well as a 6,000 square foot equipment demonstration lab.

HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION will promote use of the facility with OEI/OEM partners seeking demonstration space in the Bay Area and will encourage collaborative projects across key market segments including Machine Tool, Semiconductor and Automation equipment applications.

“We have systematically restructured our N.A. operations to redistribute our sales and support staff to improve proximity to our customer base.  This is the third expansion step in Silicon Valley over five years and the new facility will enable hands-on demonstration and training capabilities, similar to those at our HEIDENHAIN Technical Academies (HTA) located in Traunreut, Germany and Schaumburg, Ill,” said David Doyle, President and CEO of HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION.

Doyle added that his company works closely with industry associations like SEMI, AMT, and A3, and welcome their participation in this initiative, including invitations to their member companies.

“Expanding involvement with technical schools, development centers and universities is central to that objective. We hope to educate and train the future industry workforce in the use of linear, rotary and angle encoder technology, control electronics technology and related system integration,” Doyle said.
