Offset press supplier MLP U.S.A. Inc. plans to move its corporate headquarters from Lincolnshire, IL, to Hunt Valley, MD, just north of Baltimore.
President Marke Baker says the company’s relocation will occur over a period of several months, beginning in autumn 2011. It will involve office and management personnel and a multimillion-dollar inventory of spare parts. The regional sales teams, sales territories and field service technicians will be unaffected by the move.
The new headquarters will be located in a facility that houses the Corrugating Machinery Division of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Inc. MLP U.S.A., Inc. is mainly owned by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Inc., which is a subsidiary of Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.
“We are very excited about this move and pleased that MLP U.S.A. will enter 2012 with the stage set to better meet the future needs of our customers,” Baker says. “Our new facility will allow employees to function more collaboratively and communicate more effectively not only with each other but also with our customers. By working under one roof with the Corrugated Machinery Division, we can take advantage of synergies and improve coordination among these related businesses and functional areas.”
