Nortech Systems to Close Facility in Augusta, Wisconsin


Reading time ( words)

Nortech Systems Incorporated has announced plans to close its manufacturing facility in Augusta, Wisconsin, by the end of 2016.

The three primary EMS markets served by Nortech Systems are industrial, medical and aerospace/defense.  Since 1992, the Augusta facility has served mainly an industrial customer base and defense overflow production that aligned with their custom cable capabilities.

“Our industrial customers have been hit the hardest by the slow economy and the defense business has been impacted by major defense budget cuts over the past several years,” said Rich Wasielewski, president and CEO of Nortech Systems. “This was a difficult decision but we were unable to keep the facility open due to changing customer requirements and lower demand.”

Consolidation and restructuring costs are expected to be offset with savings and have minimal financial impact on the company’s 2016 results and become fully accretive once the consolidation has been completed.
