ERNI has broken ground on a state-of-the-art production and distribution facility in Chesterfield County, Virginia. The new building, home to ERNI Virginia Production as well as the new U.S. headquarters, is scheduled to open in December of 2019. ERNI will significantly increase its U.S. based manufacturing presence with the new facility. The company will produce electronic connectors supplying its US customers and the markets around the globe. ERNI plans to expand significantly and create approximately 105 new jobs in the next year.
ERNI is a key supplier to the automotive and industrial automation industry of high-performance electrical connectors. The new facility will house the American headquarters for ERNI in a newly, purpose-built complex in the Waterford Business Park that incorporates manufacturing, workforce training and office uses on a new 11-acre campus.
“With its new facility in Virginia, the ERNI Group will significantly increase its local and global production resources to address the market demand,” stated Rudolf Hausladen, CEO of the ERNI Group.” Our decision and investment are part of several measures globally to further strengthen our worldwide supply capabilities.”
