New construction at Arburg in the USA
Arburg's future US headquarters is conveniently situated only six miles from its previous Newington location. The new, 27,000 square feet (2,500 square metre) building offers all the facilities for further intensifying cooperation with the customers, which is becoming increasingly important in light of the ever more challenging technical requirements. Consequently, everything will be housed under one roof at Rocky Hill: numerous Arburg experts with many years' experience and comprehensive know-how, as well as a modern machine fleet. The central area will be the showroom offering space for up to seven Allrounders, which will be available both for customer-mould testing and training purposes. Adjacent to this there will be rooms for training and technical seminars, for example.
Furthermore, there will be an extensive warehouse area for Allrounders which will merely require customer-specific adaptation prior to their rapid delivery. With a 38 tonne gantry crane, the necessary logistics will be provided for all machine sizes and large unit numbers. Moreover, there will be a large centralised spare parts warehouse for all Allrounders on the US market in order to ensure even faster deliveries.
A further important area which is gaining significance in the US are turnkey systems, which Arburg supplies as a general contractor: from design and implementation through to commissioning and after-sales service. Sufficient space will also be available in the new building for the assembly and acceptance testing of customer-specific production cells of this type.
Like all Arburg buildings world-wide, Arburg Inc.'s new home will also reflect the company’s corporate identity, the most evident feature of which are the large glass facades. The facility management technology will be state-of-the-art to ensure that customers and employees feel completely at ease in the new building. "The new building will provide us with everything we need to offer our customers comprehensive, first-class support in a pleasant environment," says a delighted Friedrich Kanz, looking forward to the move from Newington to Rocky Hill following the construction period, which will extend to around 12 months.
