Breaking ground on new Hirschmann American headquarters

Hirschmann Automation and Control has broken ground on its new Americas headquarters building in Chambersburg, PA. Attending the ceremony were business leaders and dignitaries from the Chambersburg area, including Pennsylvania State Senator Terry Punt.

The 35,000 square foot building will have office and warehouse space, along with a state-of-the art training and conference center. The facility will house Hirschman's three divisions: ECS (information and control systems), INET (industrial networking), and ICON (industrial connectors).

“We are excited to move into a state-of-the art facility that will accommodate our future growth plans,” said Mark Hendel, president of Hirschmann. “Chambersburg has been a good fit for Hirschmann and we look forward to growing within the community.”

The company expects a move in date of October 1, 2007. Hirschmann employs 75 people who support the company's North and South American markets.
