Germany-based injection molding machine maker Arburg Inc. is building a new U.S. headquarters, complete with offices, showroom, and training and machine and spare parts warehouse capabilities, in Rocky Hill, Conn.

The new 27,000-square-foot building is located about six miles from Arburg’s existing facility in Newington, Conn.

Arburg owns the new location, and expects to occupy the facility in about one year.

“The new building to house Arburg’s U.S. headquarters represents a further important milestone for our activities here in the USA,” Arburg president Friedrich Kanz said in a statement.

Arburg has had a presence in the U.S. since 1991. In addition to the current Arburg Inc. headquarters in Newington, two further locations have also been established: a technology center in Irvine, Calif., and a technology center in Elgin, Ill. Currently, 65 employees work at the three locations.

“The new building offers all the facilities for further intensifying cooperation with the customers, which is becoming increasingly important in light of the ever more challenging technical requirements,” Arburg said in a statement. “Consequently, everything will be housed under one roof at Rocky Hill. There will be an extensive warehouse area for Allrounders which will merely require customer-specific adaptation prior to their rapid delivery. With a 38 tonne gantry crane, the necessary logistics will be provided for all machine sizes and large unit numbers. Moreover, there will be a large centralised spare parts warehouse for all Allrounders on the U.S. market in order to ensure even faster deliveries.”

The showroom will have space for up to seven Allrounder injection molding machines, the company added, which will be available for customer mold testing, production-specific cell development, and training purposes.
