West Coast Headquarters

Updated November 2020

San Jose, CA (July 2020) – HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION announces the opening of its newly completed West Coast headquarters. This included the expansion of its executive, sales and technical support offices, as well as demo facilities in San Jose, CA.

“We completed this project as part of our commitment to continued growth objectives and support of our machine tool, position encoder and stage systems business partnerships with San Francisco Bay Area and western territory customers,” said David Doyle, HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION President and CEO.

This new development includes the consolidation of HEIDENHAIN’s Fremont, CA, technical support operation into HEIDENHAIN’s expanded San Jose business center offices. “Proximity to the innovation centers and high-growth markets is important to our long-term future, including within semiconductor capital equipment, life science, automotive, robotics and general automation segments,” said Doyle.

Other recent western territory additions include the opening of HEIDENHAIN offices in the Seattle, Denver and Houston areas. HEIDENHAIN’s John Thormodsgard was appointed as Western Sales Director.

HEIDENHAIN’s increased Bay Area presence is another important and measured step in the long history of growth of the DR. JOHANNES HEIDENHAIN GmbH group of companies. In North America, HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION represents nine brands offering various motion control product technologies: HEIDENHAIN, ACU-RITE, ETEL, RSF, NUMERIK JENA, LEINE LINDE, AMO, IMT and LTN.

“Most importantly, we value the industry relationships that we continue to develop and we welcome our customers to visit us at any of our U.S. office locations, as well as our headquarters in Traunreut, Germany, as soon as conditions allow,” added Doyle.

HEIDENHAIN’s western U.S. office is located at 226 Airport Parkway, San Jose, CA 95110.
