Weiler Abrasives Group, Cresco, PA, a manufacturer of surface conditioning solutions, said it will expand operations at its Cresco facility and close its manufacturing facility in Suzhou, China.
The move is a result of investments in lean manufacturing and factory automation that have opened space and capacity in Cresco, the company said. Weiler will transition production in China to the United States over the next few months.
The changes will position Weiler for future growth and reinforce its commitment to U.S. manufacturing, the company also said.
