MASON, OHIO, SEPTEMBER 7, 2022 (VEGA Americas release) — VEGA Americas, Inc. — a leading manufacturer of level, switching and pressure instrumentation, and a wholly owned subsidiary of VEGA Grieshaber KG — recently announced the opening of its new headquarters and advanced manufacturing facility in Mason, Ohio.
At the heart of VEGA Americas’ 50-acre site lies the 230,000-square-foot complex that houses the company’s business operations, advanced manufacturing and production facility, and state-of-the-art training center and lab.
In a time of remarkable growth for VEGA Americas, the new $50 million campus represents an investment in better serving its customers, its employees and the community.
VEGA Americas relocated approximately 21 miles north to Mason after seven decades headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, which saw the company grow steadily to a degree that necessitated a far larger campus. With its new facility, VEGA Americas is committing to better serving its customers by bringing on more employees to support its sustained growth, expanding the range of products it manufactures in the U.S., and providing insightful product and industry training.
“We’re investing in our capabilities to better serve our customers,” said John Groom, co-CEO of VEGA Americas. “This facility will enable us to produce a wider range of instrumentation in the U.S. than was possible before. That means VEGA will be able to continue exceeding our customers’ expectations. From industry-leading fulfillment times to expert service and training, we’re able to build on what our customers already love about VEGA.”
To attract and retain top talent, the new building offers a wealth of amenities, including a restaurant, fitness center, game room and coffee bar. This is complemented by ample collaboration spaces and meeting areas spread throughout the building. Outdoors are a half-mile walking trail, basketball court and bike rentals for employees and visitors to enjoy.
The surrounding land on-site is filled with lush greenery and plant life, and is dotted by a large pond that provides a sparkling backdrop through the windows of the state-of-the-art training lab. The verdant landscape is meant to harken back to the Black Forest region of Germany, home to the VEGA Grieshaber headquarters in the town of Schiltach.
Just as important as a beautiful location to VEGA Americas’ site search process was a city partner that shared the values and principles of the company. The city of Mason and its new Mason R&D Park was selected because of how they connected with VEGA’s vision.
“At the onset of our search to develop a new long-term home, we set out to find a location and a partner that matched our global progressive identity,” said Groom. “It was important to reflect our roots in our corporate origins in the Black Forest of Germany, and to connect our values and principles with both the location and the partner. We found just that in the City of Mason and the Mason R&D park. With this investment, VEGA Americas is poised to expand its role as a global supplier of innovative measurement technology for years to come “
Community engagement and outreach is important to VEGA Americas, and the partnership with the City of Mason will drive further efforts to benefit the community. Job creation, sourcing produce from local farmers for the company restaurant, and community service projects like the Adopt A Class school outreach program are a few ways VEGA Americas is already working to make a positive impact. By working together with the city of Mason, the company will further its efforts in community engagement and sustainability, and will drive economic growth.
With increased capacity, reduced lead times, and enhanced training capabilities, VEGA Americas is prepared to build on its reputation as a trusted partner in process measurements to customers around the world. The company and its team now look forward to welcoming customers and partners to its new campus.
For more than 60 years, VEGA has provided industry-leading products for the measurement of level and pressure in the process and automation industries, including energy, petrochemical, chemical, oil and gas, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical, mining, plastics, food and beverage, bulk solids, and water and wastewater. VEGA is a worldwide organization with a presence in more than 80 countries. VEGA Americas designs, manufactures, and sells these products throughout North, Central, and South America and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of VEGA Grieshaber KG, headquartered in Schiltach, Germany. VEGA employs more than 2,000 people around the world, 380 of which are employed with VEGA Americas. https://www.vega.com/en/home_us
