Negri Bossi unveils major investment in new North American HQ

Negri Bossi is constructing a new 36,000ft² facility located in Plymouth Twp., Michigan, US, as part of a continued investment in North America.

Building work commenced in June of this year with completion and move in anticipated for January 2018.

The new facility will comprise:

Extensive demonstration and training area with 5 connected machines up to 2000 ton

Large warehouse for stock machines, robots and spare parts

50 ton combined lifting capacity

50 seat classroom with latest Audio-video technologies

Centralized chilling and Centralized material handling

Injection molding machines will be adapted on-site to customer specification, improving delivery times and providing more flexibility. The large demo and tool trial facility is being designed to provide an excellent customer experience and an increased level of spare parts storage will further improve response times.

Enhanced training facilities were a large consideration in the building design. Collaboration with local Votech (technical school) will allow technical training to be provided on demo machines and in the classrooms.

A local university will also use the classrooms and machinery for laboratory work. Third party process training seminars are planned and annual mini-exhibitions will feature complementary equipment suppliers.

Sytrama robots (sister company of Negri Bossi) will be sub-assembled in the new facility, utilizing US sourced components. This initiative will improve service response and delivery times to the market.

This investment signifies Negri Bossi’s commitment to the North American molding industry.
