Italy-based injection molding machine manufacturer Negri Bossi has announced plans to build a new 36,000-square-foot North American headquarters in Plymouth Township, Michigan.
Negri Bossi North America’s current HQ is located in New Castle, Delaware.
Building work on the Plymouth Township facility commenced in June 2017, Negri Bossi said in a statement, with completion and move-in anticipated for January 2018.
The new facility will comprise a demonstration and training area with five connected machines up to 2,000 tons; a large warehouse for stock machines, robots, and spare parts; and a 50 seat classroom.
“Injection molding machines will be adapted on-site to customer specification, improving delivery times and providing more flexibility,” the firm said. “The large demo and tool trial facility is being designed to provide an excellent customer experience and an increased level of spare parts storage will further improve response times.”
According to Negri Bossi, it collaborated with a local technical school to allow technical training to be provided on demo machines and in the classrooms. “A local university will also use the classrooms and machinery for laboratory work,” Negri Bossi said. “Third party process training seminars are planned and annual mini-exhibitions will feature complementary equipment suppliers.”
“This investment signifies Negri Bossi’s commitment to the North American molding industry,” the firm said.
