On the road to success for 30 years

10.19 For 30 years, Fagus-GreCon has been providing North American customers with its own local support of specialized market brand products.

Fagus GreCon has a comprehensive network of sales and service locations not only in Germany and Europe.  For 30 years now, Fagus GreCon has also been supplying customers in the USA with innovative products in the fields of measurement technology, inspection systems and preventive spark protection. During these 30 years, the consistent development and relocation, following the market growth ensured that Fagus-GreCon was always close to our customers to provide the most optimal support. The most recent step was the relocation of Fagus-GreCon's US headquarters to the East Coast in the fourth quarter of 2017. The company moved into its new premises in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the beginning of 2018. Since then, the company has operated under the name Fagus GreCon, Inc. The Tigard, Oregon location has become a satellite office and continues to serve as a sales and service location for customers in the western USA and Canada.
It all began in 1989 with the opening of the first location in the Pacific Northwest of the USA under the name GreCon Electronics, Inc., parallel to the engineering company, GreCon North America, Inc. at that time. On January 19, 1993, this location in Beaverton, Oregon, was renamed as a joint subsidiary, GreCon Inc. Under the management of Hermann Staats and later Stephan Rehr-Zimmermann, the newly founded company grew steadily in the following years. By the turn of the millennium, the number of employees had risen from the original 8 to 17.
In 2000, Fagus-GreCon needed to expand and moved to a larger production hall, due to constant growing projects. In 2000 the company moved to its new location in the nearby city of Tigard, Oregon.  Thus, allowing GreCon to accommodate larger and more personalized projects and to be successfully implemented.
While in the field of measurement technology, the company-wide roll-up with GreCon UPU systems for all Georgia Pacific plants in North America was a monumental achievement. With the help of this measuring system, the customer is able to check the production of wood-based panels for defects such as splitters and other quality issues.
Proven spark detection and extinguishing systems from Fagus-GreCon ensure high production availability for customers in a wide variety of industries on a daily basis and prevent both material damage and personal injury. With the implementation of our spark detection, several chipboard plants were secured and protected with spark extinguishing systems. In the past, there were numerous large fires in chipboard plants in the North American wood industries. With the help of a GreCon spark extinguishing system, the risk of fires and dust explosions would be drastically reduced. One of our largest projects in this area was the securing of the Tafisa panel plant in Lac-M├ęgantic, Quebec, Canada. Hazards such as sparks and glowing embers are detected early and rendered harmless before a fire has the possibility of causing serious damage.
In view of this corporate development, the future of Fagus-Grecon in the USA has a continued unwavering growth for success. The current number of employees in the USA is 33 dedicated personnel.
