Seco Tools is relocating its Custom Tooling unit to its North American headquarters in Troy, Mich. This allows the company to develop a center of excellence in engineered customer solutions by bringing custom tooling manufacturing together with engineering and design. At the same time, Seco will close its Lenoir City, Tenn., standard tooling facility because of changes in demand and production capacity. The transition will begin in July and is expected to be complete by the second half of next year.

Kurt Nordlund, president of Seco Tools Inc., says, “The global market has not developed according to plans made 7 years ago, which has resulted in excess capacity. Because of this, we need to modify our production model to accommodate actual market requirements, and ensure we’re offering the best solutions to our customers. As Seco proceeds through this transition, we will do our best to assist our Lenoir City employees in finding new opportunities.”
