Linde Hydraulics Corporation (LHC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Linde Hydraulics GmbH & Co., announced the opening of its newest location in Waterford Park Rock Hill, SC. The building is 67,200 sq. ft. and expansion of an additional 30,000 sq. ft. is possible. In conjunction with the existing facility located in Canfield, OH, the new operation will provide the basis for expansion and further growth in the North American region.
In announcing this expansion, LHC President John Kumler stated, “Our shareholders and customers are aligned on the need to provide regional supply of components and systems. With this expansion, Linde Hydraulics will be providing the benefit of locally sourced components soon.”
Kumler went on to say that over the next 5 years, Linde has plans for the Rock Hill facility that include adding up to 60 new jobs and potential for significant capital investment as the business expands in the region.
The Management Board of Linde Hydraulics headquartered in Germany is also pleased about further expansion in North America. “This is an important step for our global growth plan. Our expectation with setting up the new location is to increase flexibility and response time to our customers,” says Dr. Joerg Ulrich, CEO of Linde Hydraulics GmbH & Co KG.
