USA: Italian controls and humidification company Carel has officially opened its newly-extended factory in Manheim, Pennsylvania.
The addition of 40,000ft² more than doubles the Group’s North American headquarters and increases Carel’s presence in the US, Canadian and Mexican markets.
The factory was founded in Manheim in 2001, and joins the Mexico City office and five sales offices in the Americas: Atlanta, Lancaster, Milwaukee, Los Angeles and Monterrey.
Carel says the expansion and increased staff numbers will bring significant improvements in the service level provided to the market and in procurement lead times.
Present at the ribbon-cutting ceremony were Aliyah Stanger, southeast regional director at the Department of Community and Economic Development, Aaron Schwartz, president of the Manheim Chamber of Commerce, Ryan Aumentar and Mindy Fee, respectively senator and representative for Pennsylvania’s 36th and 37th districts.
In addition to the speeches by local authorities, the audience of 115 Carel USA employees and a selected group of suppliers and customers was also addressed by Carel USA CEO Martino Manfrin and Pietro Rossato, COO of the Carel Group.
“With the extra space available at the new plant, we will be able to expand the range of ‘made in USA’ products; for example, the entire range of programmable controllers, one of the flagships of our offering, will also be fully manufactured in the United States,” said Martino Manfrin. “The expansion of the Manheim site represents an important step in our international development plans, announced with the stock exchange listing last year, supporting our business growth in North America.”
