Piqua, Ohio (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
Hartzell Air Movement announces a plan to consolidate its Portland, Indiana manufacturing facility into its Piqua, Ohio operations. The benefits of the consolidation will result in customer lead-time reduction, increased efficiencies, as well as better utilization of resources.
Sean Steimle, President of Hartzell Air Movement states, “By consolidating our resources to Piqua, Ohio headquarters, it allows us to build on our strengths and continue to be a leader in the air movement industry.” Neil Cordonnier, Vice President of Operations also added, “This change will continue to support our efforts to maximize our Piqua, Ohio footprint and provide the very best service to our customers.”
Hartzell Air Movement will begin this consolidation in May 2014 and be completed by the end of August. All employees will have the opportunity to transfer to the Piqua plant. For those employees who elect not to transfer, the Company will provide separation benefits and outplacement services. Hartzell will continue to work with local resources to provide assistance during the transition process. The relocation plan will add approximately thirty jobs in Ohio by August.
Hartzell Air Movement is a leading manufacturer of industrial air moving solutions to a variety of markets throughout the world. The company manufactures in Ohio and Indiana. Hartzell has been in business since 1875.
