RETECH Systems LLC has finalized plans to relocate its headquarters from Ukiah CA to Buffalo NY. The world’s leading supplier of plasma cold hearth and electron beam furnaces will set up its manufacturing and research and development in the new facility to produce innovative melting furnaces for global distribution.
State-of the-art technologies pioneer in Buffalo
RETECH, a SECO/WARWICK Group company, will lease about 49,000 sq. ft. (4,552 m2) of space at 683 Northland Ave. Mayor Byron W. Brown claimed in the official statement that RETECH’s facility will bring state-of-the-art, high tech products to the Buffalo and Western New York area, and into the Northland Corridor Redevelopment Project.
New location, still the same the high quality
Earl Good, Retech Systems President and Managing Director, said, “Retech Systems is pleased to be moving to Buffalo. This decision was made not only to provide flawless regional and global support to our customers, we also thought about the future. The engineering and technology schools in Western New York are important incubators to support the technologies that we are creating. While we are changing our location, but the quality of our products will not be changing.” Mr. Good predicts that RETECH’s relocation will potentially create about 80 new jobs over the next few years.
Sławomir Woźniak, SECO/WARWICK’s CEO, added: “Among other reasons, we decided to relocate RETECH headquarters to Buffalo due to the close proximity of other SECO/WARWICK Group subsidiaries in nearby Meadville PA. This decision will allow closer cooperation and improved operation management. The new location will also be a nice place to host customers and suppliers.”
