UNITED GRINDING Breaks Ground for New Facility



Roger Pinney, CEO and Vice Chairman - Board of Directors, UNITED GRINDING North America, addresses UNITED GRINDING Group executives and local dignitaries at the groundbreaking ceremony for the new UNITED GRINDING North America Headquarters in Miamisburg.

In attendance were (l-r) Roger Pinney (speaking); Stephan Nell, CEO, UNITED GRINDING Group; Richard C. Church Jr., Mayor of Miamisburg; Michael Horn, Member of the Board, Körber AG; Dr. Michael Gebhardt, Project Leader, UNITED GRINDING Group; Stefan Walliser, CFO, UNITED GRINDING North America; Julie Sullivan, Vice President of Development, Dayton Development Coalition; and Tim Sweeney, Sector Director, Jobs Ohio.

Grinding and ultra-precision finishing solution provider for the manufacturing industry, UNITED GRINDING, recently conducted a groundbreaking ceremony for its new North American Headquarters to be built in Miamisburg, OH. With the new facility, UNITED GRINDING will further strengthen its customer service and support, and boost its operational agility for faster response to changing customer needs.

"UNITED GRINDING's North American market has grown significantly over the last 15 years, and the strategic outlook for the forseeable future includes even more growth," said a company spokesperson.

"The new Miamisburg facility will not only further enhance customer-centric activities, but will also boost operational agility and expand parts, rebuild, retrofit, automation and preventative maintenance offerings in the North American market. All of which further strengthens UNITED GRINDING Group's standing as a leading total solutions provider," said Stephan Nell, CEO, UNITED GRINDING Group.

"This strategic move allows us to provide our customers with solutions unique to the industry," said Nell. "As a total turn-key solutions provider, we continuously look for new ways to expand our operations and business to benefit our customers and the markets we serve."

The new UNITED GRINDING 100,000-square-foot facility will reside on approximately 15 acres of land near Ohio Interstate 75. In addition to UNITED GRINDING North America's current employees that will move to the new headquarters, the company plans to create significantly more jobs in the next five years.

Through its JobsOhio West initiative, the Dayton Development Coalition has been working with UNITED GRINDING to assist in providing community project and incentive resources, and support to aid in the new facility build as well as to drive economic development in the area.

"JobsOhio began working with UNITED GRINDING early on in their search for a site to expand their operations," said Julie Sullivan, VP of Development, Dayton Development Coalition. "With the help of our partners in Montgomery County, City of Miamisburg, the Dayton-Montgomery County Port Authority, State of Ohio and JobsOhio, we made a strong case for them to expand here in Miamisburg. It keeps them close to their customers and gives them access to a workforce known for its manufacturing expertise. Their commitment to the community shows what can happen when companies are open to learning more about the region and working with the local community."

"UNITED GRINDING's investment on the project will drive economic growth in the Miamisburg area," said the spokesperson. The company is also working with local government entities to help support the economy and reinforce development.

"The City of Miamisburg is pleased to have UNITED GRINDING, a leader in the manufacturing sector, expand its operations in the Miamisburg business community," said Miamisburg Mayor Dick Church, Jr. "UNITED GRINDING is an organization set for growth and fosters a strong business model, all positive additions to our local community."

Currently, UNITED GRINDING North America has two locations, its headquarters in Miamisburg and one in Fredericksburg, VA. While the Ohio facility houses surface, cylindrical and profile grinding business, the Virginia facility services the tool and cutter grinding machines and measurement systems sectors. Field service representatives are based out of both locations.

"The consolidation of resources is a strategic move to increase efficiency company wide and support synergy across UNITED GRINDING's various product lines," said Rodger Pinney, CEO and Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors at UNITED GRINDING North America. "The move is a key component of our new corporate strategy for continued growth and market share strength that we introduced in 2012."

The new facility will be certified for both Six Sigma and 5S and will align perfectly with the company's PuLs initiative. As an internal cross-function initiative, PuLs focuses on applying best practices in every aspect of the company's business from sales to applications support to training and preventive maintenance. It also involves the company regularly sending out surveys to effectively gauge customer satisfaction levels via the Net Promoter Score measuring method.
