AIDA-America Corp, the AIDA Global Group's North American manufacturing facility for mechanical stamping presses, held a special event Oct. 2 to recognize three events. Community business leaders, customers, and other guests gathered for a ceremony celebrating the 90th anniversary of parent company AIDA-Engineering Ltd., the grand opening of AIDA-America's manufacturing facility expansion, and 10 years of manufacturing in Huber Heights, Ohio.
"The facility expansion allows AIDA to bring large component welding in-house and increase large component machining capacity, while maintaining a high level of quality, cost-effectiveness, and control over delivery," said Troy Roberts, president of AIDA-America. "The automotive industry continues to require stampers to produce parts from high-performance materials. In order to produce these parts competitively, stampers require larger presses. This large part fabrication expansion and the installation of a new 150-ton crane will place AIDA-America in the unique position as the only North American metalforming solution provider with the in-house flexibility to fabricate, machine and assemble the larger presses from 1,000 to 4,000 tons."
The expansion totals 17,600 square feet and is expected to add 15 jobs.
