A year after breaking ground, United Grinding North America Inc. has officially opened the doors of its new 110,000-square-foot headquarters with a recent ribbon-cutting event. The building brings the company’s cylindrical, surface and profile grinding business units, as well as its automation and rebuilding departments, from its existing offices in Miamisburg, Ohio, together with the staff from its tool and cutter grinding machines and measurement systems sectors who were formerly located in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

“We’re sending a strong, powerful message to the market and our customers that United Grinding is investing in the future,” says the company’s president and CEO, Steve Jacobson. “This new facility, with all its productivity improvements and attention to detail, is the best way to build upon the partnerships we’ve developed and bring innovative services to our customers in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.”

The building is designed to further enhance efficiency, strengthen customer service and boost operational agility. “Our customers have expressed a need for faster response times and complete life-cycle solutions,” says Dr. Michael Gebhardt, project leader for the new headquarters and vice president of operations. “To that end, we designed a building as advanced as our machines, engineered for precision and speed.”

Rodger Pinney, vice chairman of the board of directors, agreed with Dr. Gebhardt, adding, “By consolidating our resources and increasing both our company-wide efficiency and support synergy, we are able to deliver an unparalleled level of customer service while creating a foundation for further growth.”

With its new facility, the company has positioned itself to offer a complete grinding experience, all under one roof. Its Solutions Center provides space for software training and demonstrations, while the streamlined rebuilding process targets new levels of workflow efficiency.
