Sunnen Products Co. is expanding its global production footprint, opening a manufacturing facility in Monterrey, Mexico, to complement its production in the U.S., China, Switzerland and Brazil. The company will move a portion of its abrasive and tooling products from its St. Louis, Missouri, operation to the Monterrey facility. The transition will be phased to begin by the end of 2019 and conclude by the end of 2020. The company expects minimal impact on staffing levels in St. Louis with this transition and will reassign most employees to fill needs in other areas.

Sunnen remains deeply committed to its employee base and to St. Louis. The company recognizes that diversification of the labor pools from which it draws its highly skilled workforce needs to expand in order to meet the demands of its customers. 

“This expansion represents a positive opportunity to further our global reach, advancing our position in the marketplace. Additionally, it allows our highly skilled St. Louis workforce to expand their focus on innovating the Sunnen portfolio and to better serving our customers for another 95 years,” says President and COO Chris Miltenberger.
