Hardinge Relocates Manufacturing from Taiwan to Elmira, New York
The company will now manufacture the Bridgeport and TALENT Series’ in the Company’s Elmira facility which has been a crucial production site since 1931. Hardinge is modernizing this facility, investing significant resources in new assembly capabilities as well as state of the art heat-treat equipment to better support the initiative.
“Hardinge has been a key employer in the great state of New York for more than 89 years. We continue this tradition and are also pleased to bring new manufacturing jobs back to the United States,” said Ryan Levenson, Owner & Co-CEO, Hardinge and Managing Partner of Privet Fund Management LLC. “Our strong local leadership and highly capable workforce form the foundation of our efforts to better support our customers by investing in our US machine manufacturing and innovation capabilities.”
The company has begun the transition process already, and will complete the manufacturing start-up of this new assembly line in Elmira during the first quarter of 2021, company officials noted.
“This is certainly a huge boost for the Elmira community, as we expect to add a significant number of jobs at the plant,” said Craig Perry, Plant Manager, Elmira. “Given the plant’s tremendous capabilities, and the extensive knowledge of the workforce here, it was a compelling opportunity to bring this manufacturing capacity to the Elmira, NY facility.”
