ELYRIA, Ohio – Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems announced today that its new headquarters will be located in Avon, Ohio.
The company signed an agreement to purchase an approximately 60-acre site just 10 miles from its current location in Elyria. The announcement that Bendix would be relocating its headquarters came in February, as its growth exceeded the capabilities and capacity of its current location.
The groundbreaking date is still being finalized. In the meantime, Bendix will continue to work out of its old location in Elyria.
“We are pleased to select Avon as the community for our future and excited about this next chapter in our history,” said Joe McAleese, Bendix chairman. “Our new location allows Bendix to continue drawing from the skilled workforce in Northeast Ohio that has contributed so importantly to our success. And the site in Avon will not only allow us to remain in Lorain County, but will accommodate the expanded, updated facility required to maintain – and accelerate – the rapid growth we’ve experienced, particularly over the past dozen years. We remain deeply grateful to Elyria for the support it has shown us over our many decades as a part of the community.”
