SICK held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the beginning of construction on a $64 million expansion at the SICK Office and Customer Resource Building in Bloomington, the company’s North American headquarters.

The company shared that the expansion provides an additional 139,000 square feet on four floors, each designed with purpose and functionality of labs, including engineering, vision software and applications, robotics, conveyors, and research & development. It will be a state-of-the-art customer conferencing and training space.

“In the ever-evolving landscape of innovation, we at SICK find our compass pointing toward a future where technology and human ingenuity converge, where knowledge meets action,” said Ron Jubis, president of sales at SICK. “It is through our collective vision that we shape the world of tomorrow.”

With sustainability at its core, the project will reportedly incorporate green space, geothermal wells and tools to harness earth’s natural energy for efficient heating and cooling. The Bloomington campus will be the central connector for SICK’s customers and regional offices located in North America: Boston, Houston, Detroit, San Francisco, Toronto, and Calgary.
