Trumpf Breaks Ground on Expansion, Smart Factory Addition in CTMarch 10, 2023
Trumpf Inc. has broken ground on an expansion of its facilities in Farmington, CT, for manufacture and sheet metal assembly of its fabricating machine tools. The company will add 55,800 sq. ft. to its production building for the manufacture of laser cutting, bending and welding machinery, part of ongoing recovery efforts related to damage sustained after a plane crashed into the production building in September of 2021. Trumpf will invest an estimated $40 million into the project, which will include a Smart Factory—the company’s fourth worldwide and second in the United States—that demonstrates advanced automated and connected precision sheet metal production. Construction is expected to be completed by May of 2024.
“North America remains the most important business market for us outside of our domestic market in Germany,” says Nicola Leibinger-Kammüller, CEO of Trumpf Group, which this year celebrates its 100th anniversary. “We are pleased to emphasize this importance with our investment.”
Adds Lutz Labisch, Trumpf Inc. president and CEO: “This project is an important step toward the next generation of manufacturing for Trumpf and also for our customers across the United States. Smart Factories and automated, connected manufacturing are important parts of keeping American manufacturing companies strong and competitive into the future.”
