HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Oct. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Bystronic Inc. announces their Grand Opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony for the new facility in Hoffman Estatestoday.
The new facility is the headquarters for the Bystronic Americas region and includes leading-edge Customer Experience and Manufacturing Centers. It serves as the hub for U.S. business operations including sales, service, training, spare parts, assembly of new Bystronic machines and refurbishing of used Bystronic machinery. Bystronic employs over 200 employees in the U.S with a notable increase this year as the company continues to grow.
"We are excited to strengthen our presence in the United States and call Hoffman Estates home for our new headquarters for the Americas," said Robert St. Aubin, president Region Americas at Bystronic Group.
"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," he said. "This new headquarters and manufacturing facility is expected to accommodate the Company's projected year over year employee growth target of approximately 20 percent for vital operations, manufacturing, administration and support, and project management."
Hoffman Estates' Mayor, William McLeod added, "Hoffman Estates is proud to be the home of Bystronic, a company on the cutting-edge of sheet metal manufacturing, fulfillment, and customer service. Their technologically innovative, full-spectrum operation provides significant leverage to our community and region in the area of manufacturing. Bystronic's future here in Hoffman Estates is an exciting one."
"We are delighted to open our headquarters in Hoffman Estates, close to our American customers and partners. Bystronic is a world leader in sheet and tube metal processing technology. The vast majority of Bystronic's product and service innovations are co-created with customers, suppliers, startups and other partners. Our goal for the future is to produce more of our sustainable technologies here and continue to help our customers to be at the forefront of world based competition," said Christoph Rüttimann, chief technology officer of Bystronic.
With the assembly of laser cutting machines in the USA, Bystronic is further developing its market leading presence and operations network. Specifically, the next generation BySmart Fiber 3015 and 4020 laser cutting machines, now with unprecedented 8kW and 10kW Fiber laser power, are the first machines to be locally produced in the three major market regions of the world: North America, Europe, and Asia, thus strengthening Bystronic's global product availability and supply chain diversification.
