LGMG North America will move its headquarters from Chambersburg, PA to Dallas, TX later this year and will also expand its operations across Canada in an effort to “capitalize on new business opportunities,” the company said.

Additionally, LGMG N.A.’s parent company – China-based Lingong Machinery Group (LGMG) – announced its plans to build a $140-million manufacturing plant in the northern Mexican border state of Nuevo Leon where it will produce access equipment. LGMG said the facility will employ roughly 1,400 people once completed. Details have not been released. 

The changes are part of the LGMG’s restructuring strategy, which was created in response to the U.S. Department of Commerce and International Trade Commission’s rulings that imposed high import tariffs on LGMG’s products.

To eliminate overhead costs, LGMG North America has also consolidated its warehousing operations while opening two new locations: one in Vancouver, British Columbia and the other, in partnership with its distribution partner, Cisolift, near Montreal in St-Germain-de-Grantham, Quebec.

“Centralizing and combining our aftermarket operations strengthens our customer support and makes good business sense,” said Eric Liner, president and CEO of LGMG North America. “We have aligned ourselves with a great partner in eastern Canada, Cisolift, who has a wealth of experience in the access equipment industry, and strong relationships throughout the region. And we are excited for the opportunity to build a similar distribution network in the West with our new Vancouver warehouse.”

Liner added that the restructuring strategy will “position the company for sustained, long-term growth within the North American market.”
