Nidec Industrial Solutions (NIS) has expanded in the US following the opening of its new facility in Cleveland.
This new Ohio facility has been able to support essential industries during the COVID-19 crisis and paves the path for future growth in North America.
The $12 million (€10 million) investment in the new building comprises 67,000 sq ft of office and manufacturing space. The facility is a three-tier building and brings together 130 employees previously housed in three separate facilities.
The site is classified as an essential manufacturing facility because NIS manufactures both its leading Nidec Avtron Encoders and large-scale controls and automation systems for renewables and energy storage, oil and gas, steel, PPE production, healthcare equipment, US defence installations and in pulp and paper machinery.
The state-of-the-art facility features a purpose-built area for the assembly and testing of large industrial controls and automation systems, battery energy storage systems and medium voltage drives as well as a cutting-edge production area for Nidec’s Avtron Encoders.
“Beyond the investment in this facility through this crisis, at NIS we have not retrenched or furloughed employees. Instead, we are hiring and will continue to invest in technology and in our people to provide cutting-edge solutions with encoders and other sensors, integrated drives, controls, and automation systems, as well as battery energy storage solutions for the green new world.” said Tom Aloor, executive VP of Nidec industrial Solutions.
