Retech to relocate manufacturing and assembly to Poland
November 22, 2018
Retech Systems LLC, based in Ukiah, California, USA, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seco/Warwick, Swiebodzin, Poland, is to relocate much of its manufacturing and assembly previously carried out at its California plant to facilities in Swiebodzin. The Ukiah office is set to be downsized, with Retech stating that it will retain its experienced engineers, lead technical directors, technologists and service staff.
The company added that key leadership roles will continue to be filled, and its R&D Center continue to be built up. A West Coast office will be maintained in California, alongside the company’s recently opened East Coast office in Buffalo, New York, USA.
Earl Good, Retech President, stated, “This is an effort to both strengthen our organisation and to satisfy our customers’ expectations. Ultimately, we are confident that the new organisational structure and footprint will enable Retech to be much closer to our global customers while improving our competitiveness in the industrial markets we serve.”
Retech expects that the change will better position the company to support both large capital projects and regular customer service needs. The move is said to be the result of a reinvestment in Retech by both its own management team and the team of Seco/Warwick.
