Edwards continues strategic growth with opening of new us service center
A sign of Edwards’ commitment to improvement and efficiency.
NIAGARA, NEW YORK, USA. (1 April, 2014) — Edwards Limited, a leading manufacturer of sophisticated vacuum products and abatement systems and a global provider of related value-added services, is excited to announce the upcoming opening of its new vacuum and abatement Service Center in Glenwillow, OH. This state-of-the-art center will replace its current remanufacturing hub in Strongsville, and will include Edwards’ latest remanufacturing and repair methodology as well as expanded product repair capability.
“This is not simply a relocation”, commented Stephen Abate, the Americas Service Director at Edwards. “We have reached the capacity of our Strongsville center and, in looking to the future, are eager to expand and improve our operations in Ohio.” The Glenwillow site has been designed to upgrade to the latest service processes and global best operating practices and will allow Edwards’ service teams to better support their valued customers in the United States.
Overall, the new service hub will facilitate the lean manufacturing standards1 that Edwards holds itself to around the world. New training facilities will provide a forum for hub staff, field service engineers and customers to benefit from hands-on instruction. Brand new equipment and a streamlined layout will improve efficiency. The combination of increased capacity and upgraded technology will support Edwards’ planned future growth and additional product lines.
“This center is a statement of our commitment to our wide customer base”, added Abate. “As our business grows, we need to respond to increasing service demands from our customers in the general industrial sectors, research and development labs, chemical process industries and the semiconductor industry. This move-up will allow us to do just that and we look forward to providing even better service in 2014 and beyond.”
The new center will begin operation on April 25, 2014. After this date, all correspondence should be sent to the new address:
