Columbus McKinnon Moving Their Headquarters From Upstate NY To Charlotte


Yet another major company has just announced plans to move their headquarters to the Queen City.

Motion solutions manufacturer Columbus McKinnon just announced plans to move their corporate headquarters from Upstate New York to Charlotte, the same week the ACC made a similar announcement.

In an interview with Buffalo News, Columbus McKinnon CEO David Wilson said the shift to North Carolina will put their headquarters closer to the majority of their customers, manufacturing facilities, and employees (they currently employ about 3,400 people).

He also noted the move will help with their goal of growing their revenue to $1.5 billion within the next 5 years – compared to $650 million in 2021.

What do you think about the move?
