Precision tools maker Walter USA announced this week that it has relocated its Americas technology center and regional business operations from Waukesha, Wisconsin to Greer, South Carolina, to move closer to a growing customer base amid a strengthened manufacturing presence in the U.S.

Walter USA’s regional business operations were officially relocated to the Greer facility as of Sept. 1. The new address is: Walter USA LLC, 1510 S. Batesville Road, Greer, South Carolina, 29650.

Walter said the new technology center — expected to be complete in late 2023 — will showcase digitally networked metal-cutting technology to provide customers with the latest advances in both testing and training opportunities. 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,” Walter Americas President Richard Garrick said in a news release. “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.”

Walter added that the new technology center and the addition of manufacturing capacity underscore the company’s commitment to the U.S. market and supports the long-term growth strategy for Walter in North America — aligning with its GoGlobal 2025 strategy. 

“Having a dedicated production facility in the U.S. will enable the company to provide both better responsiveness to customer demand as well as improve supply chain security,” Walter noted.
