Feb. 1, 2017 – Renishaw is preparing to move into a new 133,000-square-foot office and warehouse facility in West Dundee, Ill. The two-storey facility will be the company’s new North American headquarters, which also includes space for product development, testing, warehousing and distribution.
It includes the new U.S. Additive Manufacturing Solutions Center, part of the company’s network of global solutions centres opening over the next year. Renishaw says the centres are designed to provide venues where the additive manufacturing adoption process can be accelerated.
“We can give companies cost-effective, hands-on experience of metal additive manufacturing, combined with application engineering support to optimize their design, and post-processing capabilities to ensure that it performs as it should,” said Sir David McMurtry, chairman and CEO.
“With the popularity and adoption of Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory philosophies, our products and services are relevant to a larger and more diverse group of manufacturing operations,” added Howard Salt, president. “These new facilities makes it more feasible, logistically, for us to work cooperatively with customers and potential customers in North America, and develop solutions specific to them.”
A ribbon-cutting event is planned for March, and the company expects to be fully relocated by October. The new address is 1001 Wesemann Drive, West Dundee, Ill., 60118. All other contact information, including phone/fax numbers, email addresses and website, will remain the same.
