Arburg Inc., the North American subsidiary of Arburg GmbH + Co. KG, Lossburg, Germany, has broken ground on its new US headquarters in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA. A ground breaking ceremony held by the company was attended by Friedrich Kanz, Arburg Inc.’s Managing Director, and Claude-Helene McIntyre, Arburg Inc.’s VP – Finance/CFO, as well as representatives of the city of Rocky Hill. 

The new hall will add approximately 2,100 m2 of floor space, an expansion of more than 80% on its original scale, offering more space for building and acceptance-testing of complete turnkey systems and adapting stock machines to customer specifications, as well as a significantly larger spare parts warehouse. 

According to Arburg, the new building will be equipped with modern logistics and a gantry crane with a lifting capacity of 40 tonnes. Further rooms will be made available for customer training and technical seminars, while the showroom in the existing building will continue to serve as a demonstration area for seven Allrounder injection moulding machines.

While it operates out of thirty-four locations in twenty-six countries, Arburg stated that the USA is its most important foreign market. Arburg Inc. was founded in 1990 and, in addition to its newly-expanded facility in Rocky Hill, is represented by two Technology Centers in the US – ATC California, Irvine, California, and ATC Midwest, in Elgin, Illinois. The company has a user base of 13,000 installed machines in the US, Canada and the Mexican border region. 

“In recent years, our business in the US has developed significantly better and faster than expected,” stated Kanz. “Thanks to this dynamic development, we now face the fortunate problem that our US headquarters, which was newly built as recently as 2015, is already reaching its capacity limits.”
