NDC Technologies’ new Huber Heights headquarters means an additional 42 jobs for the Dayton region and an opportunity for some of its employees to make a big move to Ohio.
In early 2017, the company announced it would move its headquarters from Irwindale, California, to Huber Heights in a key decision designed to consolidate production and administrative functions. Relocation of its headquarters was one of several initiatives the company undertook in 2017 to grow its capabilities in the markets it serves. In order to expand, NDC officials had to look for a place with a more competitive business climate, a lower cost of living, and better proximity to its manufacturing partners and customers.
“We are focused on the long-term future of NDC and are taking strategic actions now to further improve the company’s overall operations and enhance our competitive position for future growth,” said NDC President Dave Roland.
The new headquarters is located in the company’s previously existing Huber Heights manufacturing center, which employs 73 workers. Along with the completion of a comprehensive renovation of the headquarters, the company made several updates to the manufacturing facility.
NDC develops and produces process measurement and control instruments. It consists of four business groups serving the metals market; cable and tube markets; film extrusion and converting markets; and food, tobacco and bulk materials markets. The company has technical centers of excellence for each of these market focus areas and invests heavily in R&D activity to retain its leadership position in measurement and control technology.
NDC’s Huber Heights project drew support from local, state and private economic development entities, who sent representatives to California to answer employees’ questions about the benefits of moving to Ohio. Dayton Development Coalition (DDC) also assembled a welcome tour for more than two dozen employees visiting from California.
“The collaboration between NDC, the city, Montgomery County, JobsOhio and DDC helped create an expedited, smooth process for their expansion,” said Robert Schommer, Huber Heights city manager. “We are proud that they now call the City of Huber Heights their official home.”
NDC has offered to move all employees between now and June 2018. The hiring process and the first expansion phase are both underway.
