Mequon, WI is the new home to Hainbuch America. The German workholding company moved into the facility in November, and manufacturing is scheduled to commence in the first quarter 2010.
"With implementing a job shop here we will be able to provide better and quicker service to our customers," says Sylvia Rall, Hainbuch co-owner. "For example, we will offer a next-day-shipping service for all grind-outs of Spanntop clamping heads.
Rall came to the U.S. from Germany earlier in the year to aid the transition. She anticipates they will hire 10-12 new employees when full operation is achieved in early 2010.
Jurgen Bettray, president of Hainbuch America, commented, "It was a good time to invest in our future here. Our workholding products have long been known for their exceptional precision. Now our U.S. customers will enjoy almost instantaneous access to them."
