April 3, 2014 – Laird, a global technology company, today announced its Sharpsville based Wireless Automation and Controls business will move to a new facility located in Warren, Ohio. The move to the new site will begin in the spring with expected completion by early summer of 2014.

Laird employs about 150 people at their current facility in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania. The team has outgrown the current location and the move to Warren will allow for significant job growth, updated work stations and equipment, as well as other added benefits of a larger facility. The site will include manufacturing, sales, research and development, finance, after-market service and customer support staff with additional space for future employees.

“Laird thanks the Sharpsville community for hosting Laird and helping us to build a strong team over the past 65 years. Many of our employees, members of the Sharpsville community themselves, will continue on with Laird by commuting to the new location,” said Rick Morse, senior vice president and general manager for Laird.

Laird is looking forward to becoming an active contributor to the Warren, Ohio community. The Company has long enjoyed excellent US manufacturing, engineering and sales facilities in Ohio, California, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan and New Hampshire.

“We are excited about the future opportunities in Warren,” Morse said. “As we focus on providing innovation, reliable fulfillment and speed to our customers, this move helps us meet these goals through greater operational efficiency with the additional space.”
