Hanna said the company’s primary motivation for relocating the production lines is to focus manufacturing toward one location to reduce costs.
“We are in a global environment, so we always look for opportunities to streamline so we can be more competitive,” Hanna said.
After relocating the manufacturing lines, Hanna said the Columbia plant will become the late adaptation center for the company, focusing on customizing the products in the late stages of production.
The Cedar Rapids facility’s low-voltage circuit breaker manufacturing line will also move to Tlaxcala, Mexico, Hanna said. The facility in Mexico will be the company’s only center for low-voltage circuit breaker manufacturing.
“It’s not an easy decision to make,” Hanna said.
