A California-based manufacturer is consolidating and moving its headquarters to Huber Heights, and it may result in the creation of 40 additional jobs.
NDC Technologies, which develops and produces process measurement and control instruments, will consolidate its production and administration functions in Irwindale, Cal., and move its headquarters to the Dayton area.
The company already has a presence in Huber Heights at 8001 Technology Blvd.

JobsOhio and the Dayton Development Coalition said the project remains contingent on final approval of incentives, but both welcomed NDC Technologies’ plans in Huber Heights.
“Ohio’s industrial diversity, military presence and abundance of engineering talent make it an ideal location for NDC Technologies to establish its headquarters and grow,” said JobsOhio Managing Director for Advanced Manufacturing and Aerospace Glenn Richardson.
The company has around 70 employees at its Huber Heights location currently, and the move could possibly add an additional 40 jobs in the area. Those additional 40 jobs would partly come from the relocation of some existing employees, and the creation of new positions.
Mitch Heaton, project manager for the JobsOhio Network, said several entities — including Huber Heights city officials, Montgomery County and JobsOhio — have worked to bring the company headquarters to the area.

“We’ve been working on it for just over a year,” Heaton said.
A company statement said the move is “part of an ongoing strategy to drive simplification in business processes to become more agile, further improve global execution and place even greater focus on serving customers and developing new products.”
The facility in Irwindale will not close, but will undergo infrastructure improvements to transform into the company’s new Web Process Solutions Technical Centre of Excellence. NDC also has a manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom, and direct sales and support facilities in China, Japan, France, Germany and Italy.
“We are rolling out a phased plan to ease the transition and to ensure continuity of good customer service,” said Dave Roland, president of NDC Technologies.
NDC provides measurement and control systems, which are used in the food, chemicals, pharmaceutical and tobacco industries. The company also works to offer solutions for measurements in the cable, metals and tubing industries.
