NDC Technologies announces investment in technology centre and further evolution of manufacturing strategy
NDC Technologies, a leading global provider of precision measurement and process control solutions, announces that it will be consolidating its Irwindale, California production and administration functions into its Dayton, Ohio facility, which will subsequently become the new company headquarters. Significant investment will then be made in the Irwindale facility, which will undergo major infrastructure improvements to become the new Web Process Solutions Technical Centre of Excellence.
This is part of an on-going strategy to drive simplification in business processes to become more agile, further improve global execution and place even greater focus on serving customers and developing new products to satisfy their ever-evolving needs. The company’s advanced manufacturing program will continue in partnership with key global suppliers to maintain maximum business flexibility, while focusing on key technologies to drive the company’s future. The R&D team will continue to focus on the development of new sensor technology and advanced software for control and analytics aimed at the extrusion and converting industries.
“We are rolling out a phased plan to ease the transition and to ensure continuity of good customer service,” said Dave Roland, president of NDC technologies.
Mr. Roland emphasised, “We are focused on the long-term future of NDC and are taking strategic actions now to further improve the company’s overall operations and enhance our competitive position for future growth. It is important we stay aligned with our customers who rely on NDC’s products and services. A large investment will also be made at the Dayton facility to accommodate the increased operation size and to handle advanced sensor build capability being put in place.”
NDC Technologies is made up of four different business groups, respectively, serving the film extrusion and converting markets, food, tobacco and bulk materials markets, metals market, and cable and tube markets. The company has technical centres of excellence for each of these market focus areas and invests heavily in R&D activity to retain its leadership position in measurement and control technology.
