Hartzell Air Movement announces a plan to consolidate its Portland, IN manufacturing facility into its Piqua, OH operations. The benefits of the consolidation will result in customer lead-time reduction, increased efficiencies, as well as better utilization of resources.
“By consolidating our resources to Piqua, OH headquarters, it allows us to build on our strengths and continue to be a leader in the air movement industry,” said Sean Steimle, president of Hartzell Air Movement.
“This change will continue to support our efforts to maximize our Piqua, OH footprint and provide the very best service to our customers,” added Neil Cordonnier, vice president of operations.
Hartzell Air Movement will begin this consolidation in May 2014 and be completed by the end of August. All employees will have the opportunity to transfer to the Piqua plant. For those employees who elect not to transfer, the company will provide separation benefits and outplacement services. Hartzell will continue to work with local resources to provide assistance during the transition process. The relocation plan will add approximately 30 jobs in Ohio by August.
