NCR Restructures Global Manufacturing Operations

Jan. 11, 2007
Moves to contract model in the Americas.

In order to realign its global Financial Self Service manufacturing operations in line with the company's strategy to build a more competitive cost structure, NCR Corp. announced some changes in its manufacturing practices.

Highlights of the realignment include:

  • Reduce manufacturing operations and shift the focus of the Dundee, Scotland, facility to new product introductions and the delivery of high-complexity/low-volume solutions
  • Meet volume customer demand in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific through NCR manufacturing facilities in Beijing, Budapest and India
  • Move to a contract manufacturing model in the Americas. NCR will transition ATM manufacturing in the Americas to a premier manufacturer over a multi-month period.

"The realignment should enable meaningful cost reduction as we optimize our manufacturing operations by improving absorption across geographies and strategically outsourcing to contract manufacturers where the company can reap economies of scale," said Bill Nuti, president and chief executive officer of NCR.

NCR expects to "reduce overall operating costs and free capital to invest in revenue-generating programs in sales, engineering and market development," according to a company statement.
