EAS Mold & Die Change Systems Inc. is moving its corporate operations for North and Central America to a 6,000-square-foot facility in Greenville, S.C.
The Dutch company, which makes quick clamping and quick changing systems for injection molding machines and metal stamping presses, as well as mold and die handling equipment, previously housed its North and Central American headquarters in Menomonee Falls, Wis.
Vincent Nijzink, CEO of EAS Europe BV in Renswoude, Netherlands, said in an April 19 email that the Wisconsin facility will remain open, but employees will move to a smaller office.
"Next to moving the office, the Wisconsin operation will change function," Nijzink said. "Now it will be a sales office and service center for the northern part of the USA and Canada instead of being our North American HQ."
Currently, two people work in the Wisconsin office, but Nijzink said he is looking to add another sales person and a service technician.
The company's initial investment in the move will be around $200,000 and includes production setup for selected products, increasing stock levels and expanding service and maintenance capabilities.
EAS is leasing two out of five suites at the Greenville facility, which is part of the South Carolina Technology and Aviation Center, a manufacturing hub that is home to more than 100 companies working in various industries. One third of the company's leased property will be used for offices, with a majority of the space allotted for a warehouse and assembly plant.
