TRUMPF Inc. has begun work on expanding its local manufacture and sheet metal assembly of fabricating machine tools in Farmington, Connecticut. The North American subsidiary of the high-tech TRUMPF Group will add 55,800 square feet to its production building for the manufacture of laser cutting, bending and welding machinery. The project is part of ongoing recovery efforts related to damage sustained after a plane crashed into the production building in September of 2021. TRUMPF will invest an estimated $40 million into the project which will include a Smart Factory that demonstrates advanced automated and connected precision sheet metal production.
“North America remains the most important business market for us outside of our domestic market in Germany. We are pleased to emphasize the importance with this investment,” said Nicola Leibinger-Kammüller, CEO of the TRUMPF Group.
