Hearing aid solutions provider WS Audiology announced the opening of a new 94,000 square foot Americas Manufacturing and Distribution Center in Mexico to serve Signia customers throughout the United States, Canada, and Latin America. As part of this realignment, the company is phasing out all China-based Signia custom device production for the Americas.
“The industry we serve continues to evolve, presenting us with challenges and opportunities to best meet the needs of our partners and their patients. For us to grow, expand, and remain the valued business partner that we are to our customers, we must always meet the challenge of change with solutions that enhance our value to the customers we serve,” said Mike O’Neil, President of Signia. “The Americas Manufacturing and Distribution Center enables us to better manage our Americas supply chain and improve the service we provide to partners and customers in the region.”
As part of this realignment strategy, WS Audiology will close its manufacturing and distribution center in Piscataway, New Jersey in early 2023 and relocate all operations to Mexico. A new Signia headquarters office for non-production employees unaffected by this move will be announced shortly.
Signa aims to “enhance human performance through iconic innovations and consumer-friendly designs that shape the hearing health market.” In addition to hearing aids, Signia also delivers tools and apps to increase customer interaction and engagement at all levels of hearing aid management.
