Hyundai-WIA opening new office

HWMA is expanding its operations into the Americas with the opening of a new 88,000+ sq ft office in Carlstadt, NJ.


Hyundai-Wia Machine America Corp. (HWMA) announced the grand opening of its new state-of-the-art corporate headquarters and technical center. The 88,000+ sq-ft facility in the Borough of Carlstadt, New Jersey features more than 21,500 sq ft of modern office space along with a 66,500 sq-ft showroom and warehouse. 

The New Jersey headquarters is designed with energy-efficient features, including eco-friendly air circulation systems, and abundant motion controlled natural lighting. The HWMA facility also houses advanced automation offices for support of its “turnkey solution” or “one stop solution” sales approach. The manufacturing area, complete with machine docks and complete rigging capabilities, includes ergonomic and environmental efficiencies for operating the company’s extensive line of machine tools.

According to HWMA's President, Ki Ho Park, “In past years we were concerned that the lingering manufacturing downturn, economic fluctuations, or the fuel shortage would negatively affect our development plans. However, our new headquarters reflects our dynamic expansion and our steadfast commitment to and support of existing and new customers.”

As a result of that, HWMA will be expanding its presence in the Americas’ marketplace by introducing 13 recently developed machine tools. These innovations are a small representation of the new products and technologies introduced by HWMA’s parent company, Hyundai-WIA, at the Korea HINEX 2011 machine tool exhibition in Changwon, Korea.

HWMA will preview the new machine designs at its Grand Opening celebration on Monday, Sept. 12th from 2:00pm — 5:00pm and Tuesday, September 13th from 9:00am — 3:00pm. The event will include hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and door prizes.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
