Retech Systems LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seco/Warwick, Swiebodzin, Poland, has finalised plans to relocate its headquarters from Ukiah, California, to Buffalo, New York, USA.
The company, a supplier of vacuum and cold hearth melting furnaces, which utilise electron beam, plasma and cold wall induction technologies to melt and cast titanium, nickel, alloys and rare earth metals for use by medical, defence and aerospace manufacturers, has now established its manufacturing and research and development in the new 4,552 m2 facility to produce melting furnaces for global distribution. The company expects that the change of location could create approximately eighty new jobs over the next few years.
“Retech Systems is pleased to be moving to Buffalo,” stated Earl Good, President and Managing Director of Retech Systems. “This decision was made not only to provide flawless regional and global support to our customers, but we also thought about the future. The engineering and technology schools in Western New York are important incubators to support the technologies that we are creating. While we are changing our location, the quality of our products will not be changing.”
Sławomir Woźniak, CEO of Seco/Warwick, commented, “Among other reasons, we decided to relocate Retech headquarters to Buffalo due to the close proximity of other Seco/Warwick Group subsidiaries in nearby Meadville, Pennsylvania, USA. This decision will allow closer cooperation and improved operation management. The new location will also be a nice place to host customers and suppliers.”
