NEGRI BOSSI
Opening of new HQ in the USA / Machine manufacturer stays on track for growth / CEO re-elected
In light of its recent strategic expansion plans in North America, Italian injection moulding manufacturer Negri Bossi (Milan; www.negribossi.com) announced it will move its US headquarters from New Castle, Delaware, to Plymouth Township, Michigan. Construction work on the 3,300 mē facility was commenced in June, the relocation is scheduled for January 2018.

In addition to administrative offices, the site will also feature areas for demonstration and training purposes, including five injection moulding machines with a performance of up to 20,000 kN as well as warehouses to store machinery, robotics and replacement parts. Machinery will also be custom-tailored to individual clients on site.

Negri Bossi subsidiary Sytrama (Milan; www.roboline.it) will continue to pre-assemble their robotics parts in Plymouth Township, too, using components made in the USA in particular. As announced last year (see Plasteurope.com of 27.10.2016), the Italian company is evidently seeking greater proximity to the automotive industry, illustrated by the move to open a technical centre in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The manufacturer further reported the re-election of CEO Craig Ward on 30 June, for the next three years.
