Nidec Industrial Solutions, the industrial platform of Nidec Group, celebrated the groundbreaking of its new US headquarters and manufacturing facility in Brooklyn Heights, Ohio.
The new home of Nidec Industrial Solutions -Americas represents an investment of more than $10 million and will comprise 67,000 sq. ft. of office and manufacturing space located. The facility will be a three-tier building and is expected to be completed by January 2020. The new facility will feature a purpose-built area for the assembly and testing of large industrial controls & automation systems, battery energy storage systems and medium voltage drives as well as a production area for Nidec’s Avtron encoders.
“It is a very important moment in the fast-paced growth of Nidec Industrial Solutions. I am excited to see our new headquarters taking shape and soon our team can work together in this new facility instead of being spread across three separate facilities as we are today,” said Tom Aloor, executive vice president of Nidec Industrial Solutions – Americas said.
