Murrelektronik Begins Cordset Production in the U.S.

Global provider of decentralized automation solutions opens production facility in the United States.

Murrelektronik, the global developer and producer of high-quality products for electrical and electronic machine and plant installations, has opened a production facility where it manufactures a wide range of cordsets for the first time the USA, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Headquartered in Germany with operations on every continent, Murrelektronik’s new production location is part of an expansion strategy designed to bring key products closer to customers in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

 

Over 100 people attended the Grand Opening including customers, distributors, and local government. Executive management from Germany was also there to kick-off the new production: Caroline Hafner-Pinnel (Chairwoman of the Board), Markus Schyboll (CEO of Murrelektronik), and Stefan Grotzke (COO of Murrelektronik). Markus Keller (President of Murrelektronik, Inc. in the USA) said, “The opening of this facility enhances our footprint in the U.S. and will streamline the production and distribution of our cordsets throughout North America.”

 

Murrelektronik’s new facility can produce over 7,000 different versions of M8 and M12 cordsets with many different features: three color choices, all connector configurations and five cable types: PVC, PUR/PVC, PUR, Robotic and TPE. Production began in October of this year, right after the Ribbon Cutting event at the Grand Opening.

Along with production locations in Europe and China, the latest facility in the USA ensures that Murrelektronik can reach their customers worldwide with quick delivery times. All the production lines worldwide are identical so that they can continue to offer the well-known high quality of their cordsets. Taking all production and logistics locations into account brings their total available space to over 340,000 ft² worldwide.

“Our decision to bring cordset production to the United States better connects us to our customers. We’re proud to print, “Made in USA” on these products and we’re especially happy that our new facility completes our global production network vision and prepares us for future growth,” said Stefan Grotzke, (COO).
