Sumitomo Opens New Facility in Louisville, Kentucky

October 20, 2008
Chesapeake, VA
United States

 Sumitomo Machinery Corporation of America (SMA) opened a new facility in Louisville, Kentucky on Monday, September 01, 2008.  This new facility joins the Glendale Heights, IL, Carrolton, TX and Corona, CA facilities as well as the corporate headquarters in Chesapeake, VA in supporting the increasing demand for Sumitomo power transmission products in the U.S.

“Geographically, the new Louisville facility is almost equidistant between the Illinois and Chesapeake facilities, and it's very close to the UPS Worldport” noted James Travers, Vice President of SMA Business Operations.  “As part of Sumitomo’s growth plans, this facility will provide regional service support for local material and parcel handling OEM’s, as well as serve the Ohio Valley region.  The facility will initially focus on the assembly of Hyponics, increasing corporate capacity by approximately 350 units per month.  Future plans include Cyclo assembly, and service support.”
