Motion Industries, which is based in Birmingham, has opened a new facility in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, replacing an existing facility and doubling its size.
The company, which offers industrial technology solutions, built a 105,000-square-foot facility that will be used as a regional sales and support center, with classrooms, a fulfillment center, assembly shop and proof-of-concept design area.
“We wanted to meet the growing demands of our customers and the industry by growing every facet of automation and robotics solutions,” said Aurelio Banda, Motion’s senior vice president, automation intelligence. “Our investments allow for future, incremental expansion within our structure up to 30% beyond our current growth plans. This will also allow us to add employees over time.”
Randy Breaux, president of Motion, said opening the facility will help the company provide more production efficiency to its customers.
“This is an important step in our long-term growth strategy, and we’re excited to see the upward trajectory of technological innovation and services that the new Motion Ai location will support,” he said.
