Gudel Inc. Expands Manufacturing Capacity

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer recently visited the headquarters of Güdel Group in Langenthal, Switzerland. (l-r) Quentin Messer, CEcD of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC); Hans Gut, former CEO, Güdel Group AG; Armin Haller, CEO, Güdel Group AG; Gov. Gretchen Whitmer; Ron Slone, Managing Director, Güdel Americas; Gwendolin Güdel, Chairwoman; Zack Pohl, Deputy Chief of Staff to Gov. Whitmer; Adrian Jäggi, CFO, Güdel Group AG; Vlatko Tomic-Bobas, Director, Europe, MEDC; and Urs Fischer, COO, Güdel Group AG.

Güdel, a global manufacturer of tracks for industrial robots, gantry robots and complete solutions for industrial automation, announced it is expanding its U.S. facilities by building an additional 39,000-sq.-ft. space and adding production capacity. In addition to the building, numerous new jobs will be created. The hiring of new employees will take place over the next three years, ranging from engineers and project managers to welders, electricians and machinists.

Güdel's customers include automotive OEMs like Ford, GM, Tesla and Rivian and their suppliers, as well as companies involved in aerospace, warehouse and material handling logistics and various other industries. The company manufactures the tracks that heavy industrial robots often use to extend their reach and provide them with a 7th axis of movement and gantry robots with high performance and precision. Additionally, Güdel Ann Arbor provides full turn-key automation solutions for various industries, including material handling and stamping press automation.

The CEO for Güdel Group, Armin Haller, said, "We are actively expanding our capabilities and production capacity in the Americas. There were several locations we considered, but the Ann Arbor, MI, location has been a fantastic partner for our business with close access to the economic and human resources we need to grow and succeed."

The $10 million investment in the building and the people will benefit both Güdel and the people of Michigan. The tax abatement incentive offered by the state tipped the balance of scales for the expansion location towards Michigan.
