“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.

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.
