Renishaw is preparing to move into a 133,000-square-foot office and warehouse facility in West Dundee, Illinois, about 40 miles from Chicago. The two-story facility will be the company’s new North American headquarters, but also includes space for product development, testing, warehousing and distribution. It includes the new U.S. Additive Manufacturing Solutions Center, part of Renishaw’s network of global Solutions Centers opening over the next year. The centers 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,” says Sir David McMurtry, chairman and CEO of Renishaw.
Renishaw plans to set up regional technical and sales offices throughout the United States, as the company continues to get closer to customers.
“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,” says Howard Salt, president of Renishaw, Inc.
A ribbon-cutting event is scheduled for March, and the company plans to be fully relocated by October.
