An In-depth Look at Our Facility
Moving Forward with Fuchs
Fuchs North America has been making great products for customers right here in the United States for over 75 years. In fall 2016, we opened a completely new headquarters campus in Hampstead, MD to accommodate our ongoing growth and the support we provide our clients throughout North America.
The move to our new campus comes after outgrowing our home office facilities in Owings Mills, MD, where we were located for over half a century.
Our 21-acre campus houses the executive offices of Fuchs North America, serving as the North American headquarters as well as our primary manufacturing, packaging and warehousing location.
Not only did our production capacity double, other new and expanded capabilities include mix manufacturing, spice milling and sterilization, plus packaging and warehousing that utilize the very latest stock-picking and inventory management technologies.
Our facility also features a fully equipped R&D lab, including a sensory lab and a state-of-the-art test kitchen, making it conducive to onsite ideation.
These and other amenities foster an environment of creativity as we work in collaboration with our food manufacturing and foodservice customers to turn new product ideas into reality.
In addition to our Hampstead headquarters, we support customers in all parts of the continent from our satellite manufacturing facilities in Grand Forks, ND, as well as regional warehousing and distribution locations.
