Gesswein Opens New U.S. Headquarters

New building located in Bridgeport, CT

Gesswein, a leading supplier of abrasives, tools and machines for metalworking industries, announced the opening of the company’s new headquarters in Bridgeport, CT. The 40,000 square foot facility is located at 201 Hancock Avenue. The one and a half years construction project completed in December 2011.

The new headquarters provides a more collaborative working environment, world-class customer demonstration and training facilities, as well as room for continued growth. As with the old location, customers from the Tri-state area will be able to purchase and pick up merchandise at the new headquarters.

The new warehouse efficiently stores over 15,000 skus. This allows Gesswein to consolidate its operations under one roof and provides customers with the benefit of same day shipping.

"Consolidating our inventory and staff will generate tremendous operating efficiencies for Gesswein,” says Roger H. Gesswein Jr., Chairman and CEO. “The expanded headquarters and office space will also enable us to increase staff and support our growth in the coming years. This new facility represents a dramatic improvement from our previous location and will allow us to support the rapidly growing demand for our products.”
