Continuation of the Hadley Advantage to the Transit Industry
Hadley, a leading supplier to the commercial vehicle industry, announced today the transfer of its Elkhart, Indiana based Interiors manufacturing operations to Hadley’s corporate headquarters in Grandville, Michigan. An Interior sales and engineering office will remain in Elkhart, close to customers and suppliers in that area.
Hadley announced last week the sale of its transit mirrors product line in Elkhart, Indiana to Safe Fleet.
“We are very proud of our manufacturing folks in Elkhart; it is a great business community with a strong Midwestern work ethic”, stated Thomas Bronz, President of Hadley. “The move to Michigan was based on the consideration that Hadley’s existing facility in Grandville will benefit from the additional volume.” The transition to Grandville will take place over a three month period.
“All of us are very excited to focus on the development and continuous improvement of innovative solutions for our Transit Interiors customers”, added Giorgio Verduzio, Transit Interior and Lighting Director. “Our sales and service team will continue to support local customers from Elkhart and global customers from our Grandville Headquarters.”
Hadley’s 110,000 square foot facility in Grandville will expand Interiors capacity and provide exceptional product quality and delivery. There will be no disruption in delivery of products to customers during the transfer of operations.
“Hadley has a great manufacturing team in Elkhart; their growth with the Transit Mirror business sold to Safe Fleet is sure to make us proud”, said Travis Buys, Production Operations Manager. “We are excited by the challenge of trying to match their productivity and quality with the team in Grandville.”
