July 16, 2014

Miba Sinter USA, LLC, has officially opened new production facilities at its McConnelsville site in Ohio, USA. The company, a subsidiary of the Austrian Miba Group, produces high precision sintered components for the North American automotive industry.

The Miba factory in McConnelsville started production of components in 2010 and had a total area of 45,951 ft². The extension represents an investment of USD $8 million, with the site now covering 88,414 ft².

“The doubling of our production area responds to the highly positive development of the US automotive industry. Our local to local strategy seeks for a maximum benefit for our customers in long term partnerships with reliable delivery capacity and supply. Since 2010 we invested in total USD $51 million as a commitment to the site in McConnelsville and its well trained employees. Key criteria such as logistic and energy supply as well as collaboration with persons in charge and participants are excellent,” stated F. Peter Mitterbauer, CEO of Miba group.

Miba currently has 600 employees at five production sites in the USA, the expansion could add a further 100 employees to the McConnelsville site. Miba generates 19% of its revenues in the NAFTA markets.

“Our target is to offer solutions for more efficiency, safety and environmental compatibility to our customers. We are looking forward to continuing our successful work and we see new growth opportunities in the United States of America,” added Mitterbauer.
