Renishaw recently broke ground on its new 133,000-square-foot office and warehouse facility in West Dundee, Ill., about 40 miles from Chicago. The two-story facility will be located at the OakviewBusinessPark and will be the company’s North American headquarters.
The new building, slated for completion in June 2016, will also include space for product development, testing, warehousing and distribution.
The facility will consolidate the company’s two existing sites, with a 47,000-square-foot area dedicated to warehousing/distribution, while the 86,000-square-foot office portion provides additional space for corporate services staff, as well as demonstration, training and conference facilities. The additional space includes flexible training and demonstration areas, with an open two-story exhibit hall for customer tours and product demos.
