With a ceremonial groundbreaking on June 20 in High Point, NC, Amada America, Inc. ushered in the construction phase for its High Point Technical Center and Manufacturing Center, with an expected opening in 2020. The 43-acre campus will feature a 162,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility slated to produce press brakes and advanced bending systems, with the 50,000-sq.-ft. technical center demonstrating machines and manufacturing techniques. Amada officials expect the campus to employ 200 associates when the facilities become fully operational.
Amada believes success comes from listening to the voice of our customers,” says Yukihiro Fukui, CEO of Amada North America, “and locating our newest facility in this area allows us to be close to our customer base in the Southeast.”
