Italian Companies Continue To Invest And Create Jobs In The US

Over the past several months, Italy has been on an investment spree bringing manufacturing to local economies and providing job creation in many communities across the US. Below are some of the most recent developments:

AROL GROUP
Arol North America, part of Arol Group, has opened a HQ in Buford, Georgia. The facility also includes sales and after sales support and training to US customers. The company designs, produces and distributes capping and corking systems based in Canelli, Italy, for the food and beverage sector, among others.
 The facility in Georgia includes a manufacturing plant focused on designing and producing specific models dedicated to the US markets: mechanical elevators, waterfall sorters and change parts for all Arol models.
Arol designs technology for food, beverage, wine & spirits. It manufactures over 700 closing systems and more than 500 control systems a year, with over 26,000 machines installed worldwide.

NEGRI BOSSI
In light of its recent strategic expansion plans in North America, Italian injection moulding manufacturer Negri Bossi announced it will move its US headquarters from New Castle, Delaware, to Plymouth Township, Michigan. Construction work on the 3,300 m² facility commenced in June this year while 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 will continue to pre-assemble their robotics parts in Plymouth Township, using components made in the USA in particular. As announced last year, the Italian company is evidently seeking greater proximity to the American automotive industry, illustrated by the move to open a technical centre in Ann Arbor.

TeMa
TeMa North America plans to build a manufacturing facility in the Burr Business Park in Kearneysville, WV. The 42,000-square-foot plant is expected to create 30 jobs. Italy-based TeMa has sales offices in the United States, but the West Virginia plant will be the company’s first manufacturing operation here.
“We are proud to announce the opening of our manufacturing facility in West Virginia. The development of our products has taken years of diligent work, dedication and sacrifices that have finally been repaid by a strong presence in the market with top-level partners in the United States,” said Luciano Mazzer, President of TeMa Group. “With the opening of a new production plant in West Virginia, we want to develop new, ecologically friendly products and become leaders in the U.S. market”.
The new facility will produce insulation and drainage systems for residential, commercial and industrial use. Parent company TeMa Group, is a European leader in the insulation, drainage and geotechnical sector.
