PITTSBURGH (Dec. 1, 2009)—Fenner Dunlop Americas Inc. has relocated its North American headquarters to Robinson Township, west of Pittsburgh, from its facility near Atlanta.
The company made the move to be closer to its belt manufacturing facilities in Ohio and Canada, a service operation it acquired in 2008 and major customers, according to the Cassandra Pan, president of the company. About 40 jobs will be lost in Atlanta but gained in Robinson.
Fenner Dunlop Americas, the U.S.-arm of England-based Fenner P.L.C., is leasing about 15,000 square feet of office space in Robinson. The company—which recently completed a major expansion to its Port Clinton, Ohio, belt manufacturing facility and built a new plant in Atlanta—said the new headquarters will staff about 40, including several executives relocating from Atlanta and a number of new hires.
