NSH USA Corporation Plans Construction of New Manufacturing Technology Center
NSH USA Corporation (formerly Simmons Machine Tool Corporation) recently purchased the land and buildings at 47 Broadway in Albany, New York for the construction of a new manufacturing technology center. This property, which is located next to NSH USA’s headquarters, will support the expansion of the company’s current manufacturing footprint and accommodate the Niles Technical Application Center (NTAC).
NSH USA’s current facility has been a landmark in the Menands/Albany area since the 1920s. The increased collaboration with NSH USA’s partner company in Germany, Niles-Simmons Industrieanlagen GmbH, and the larger family-owned NSH Group (Niles-Simmons-Hegenscheidt), as well as demand for NSH USA’s machines and automation necessitated the property acquisition.
Niles-Simmons designs and manufactures precision CNC machining centers that are among the most advanced, reliable, and versatile machine tools in the world. Housing the NTAC in the new facility allows NSH USA to work closely with customers on manufacturing process development, training, and software development in industries including aerospace, defense, and railway, as well as other emerging transportation and renewable energy opportunities. The new facility will also contain a Niles-Simmons N30 MC turn-mill machining center as well as other demonstration machines from the NSH Group’s members.
“The time is right for this expansion and investment by NSH USA and the NSH Group (its parent company), with the continued development of technology oriented manufacturing in New York State’s Capital Region by a variety of stakeholders. Our machines have been manufactured here in Albany for over a century. This facility will leverage our company’s core skill sets for the benefit of an expanded set of industries and deliver world class technical service support for Niles-Simmons customers in North America and potentially beyond,” said NSH USA President & Chief Operating Officer David William Davis.
NSH USA Corporation manufactures specialized and multifunction machine tools and automation systems for railway, automotive, aerospace, and other industrial manufacturers worldwide. Founded in 1910 and based in Albany, New York, NSH USA is a member of the NSH Group (Niles-Simmons-Hegenscheidt), an international leader in machine tool technology.
