The shortage of shop-floor specialists in the USA in the domain of mechanical processing has made it increasingly difficult to test and qualify new products directly within the USA. BERGHOFF customers have their products qualified in Germany and Switzerland before transferring the approved process together with the technology and infrastructure to our locations in Auburn, Alabama for the purpose of series production.
Secretary of State John Kerry is talking about the US expansion plans of the BERGHOFF Group on Investment Summit (2016/06/21)
“And finally, in this day and age, it is an observable fact that a nation’s interests and alliances are advanced not only by troops deployed to a distant battlefield or diplomats detailed to posts overseas, but it is today defined by entrepreneurs, executives, business owners like you, by the companies you build, the workers you hire, the students you train, and the people-to-people ties that you forge.
So when Germany’s Berghoff Group decides to build a manufacturing plant in Auburn, Alabama, the company isn’t just creating a hundred high-skilled, well-paid jobs; it’s creating a new link between the United States and one of our strongest and most trusted allies.”
We define the relevant components in your factory in the USA or Europe and qualify the entire mechanical process with our technology and machining experts in our European factories with the infrastructure that will be used later on in the USA.
Following successful qualification, which takes around 6-24 months, we transfer the established and audited processes as well as the associated infrastructure to our factory in Alabama, where our machining experts continue to support the production process.
