During its 50-year existence, NDC Technologies has always had a clear vision for the future. That vision, which today includes simplifying operations and executing on its business plans in ways that best serve its customers, led to a decision in early 2017 to move its headquarters from Irwindale, California, to Huber Heights, Ohio, where it already had a manufacturing facility. The expansion decision brings 42 new jobs from California to the Dayton region in addition to the existing 73.
NDC develops and produces process measurement and control instruments. It consists of four business groups serving the metals market; cable and tube markets; film extrusion and converting markets; and food, tobacco and bulk materials markets. The company has technical centers of excellence for each of these market focus areas and invests heavily in R&D activity to retain its leadership position in measurement and control technology.
NDC has been a leader in its industry for half a century. To streamline operations and customer service, it required a reorganization of its administrative structure. Relocation of its headquarters was one of several initiatives undertaken in 2017 to provide the best possible customer service while growing its capabilities in the markets it serves. The company needed a location that offered a more competitive business environment, a lower cost of living, access to talent, and proximity to its suppliers and customers.
NDC moved its headquarters to Dayton because the city provided a stronger market than California, both in terms of its cost of doing business and its central location closer to partners and customers.
NDC had a manufacturing facility in Huber Heights, prior to moving its headquarters. Along with a comprehensive renovation of its new headquarters, the company made several updates to the manufacturing facility.
NDC’s project drew support from local, state and private economic development entities.
Dayton Development Coalition (DDC) assembled teams to travel to California to meet with employees considering relocation and planned a welcome tour for more than two dozen employees who visited Ohio.
“The collaboration between NDC, the city, Montgomery County, DDC (Dayton Development Coalition) and JobsOhio helped create an expedited, smooth process for their expansion,” said Robert Schommer, Huber Heights city manager. “We are proud that they now call the city of Huber Heights their official home.”
