Dover, N.H. — Brückner Group USA will move later this year to a larger headquarters in Dover to add capabilities and provide more domestic support to processors reshoring production.
The group currently operates out of a 20,000-square-foot facility in Portsmouth, N.H., about 20 minutes from Dover, with 75 employees.
Company officials purchased a 72,000-square-foot plant for the new HQ that sits on 14 acres in case an expansion is needed.
Brueckner Group USA sells and services the Brückner Group GmbH family of products in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The group operates as a separate entity to support the products from Brückner Maschinenbau, Brückner Servtec, Kiefel Technologies and PackSys Global.
The new U.S. base is expected to be operating by the end of 2022 for sales and service of products from Brückner Maschinenbau and Brückner Servtec, which offer production lines and services for the film stretching industry; Kiefel, which offers thermoforming, molded fiber, automation, tooling joining and medical technology; and PackSys Global, which builds lines for manufacturing plastic tubes and folding and slitting machines for plastic caps.
The new site was purchased in December 2021 and will help Brückner Group USA strengthen and grow its activities in North America, according to President and CEO Matt Sieverding.
