Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems will build a new corporate headquarters in Northeast Ohio. The new site will be within a 20-mi. radius of its current Elyria location.
The company said the date for groundbreaking has not yet been finalized and is also contingent on final approvals from state and local entities. The company will continue to operate out of its current Elyria headquarters until construction of the new headquarters is complete.
“Bendix has always been proud of the talented and innovative Northeast Ohio workforce that has helped fuel our growth and success. We are grateful for our time in Elyria and for the support and cooperation we have received from the community over our many decades here,” said Bendix Chairman Joe McAleese.
“The rapid and continuous growth we have experienced – especially over the past twelve years – now means we have exceeded the capabilities and capacity of our current headquarters location," he added. "This move will enable us to further expand our business and sustain our ability to develop solutions to meet the needs of the commercial vehicle industry.”
Bendix established its current Elyria headquarters in 1941, when the company was known as Bendix-Westinghouse. More than 500 employees work in Elyria.
