Both in-person and virtual training will be a core mission of the new facility, as well as the opportunity for customers to witness application testing on their components remotely, saving on time and travel costs.

“Combining our technology center with our round tool production not only improves efficiency but enhances the customer experience when they visit the technology center,” said Richard Garrick, president of Walter Americas. “Upon visiting the new headquarters in Greer, our customers will be able to experience the latest from Walter not only in products, but also in manufacturing expertise.”

The company says the new Technology Center and the addition of manufacturing capacity will enable the company to provide both better responsiveness to customer demand as well as improve supply chain security. The new Technology Center is expected to be complete in late 2023.
