Engis Plans Expansion of World Headquarters


Engis Corporation announces expansion plans that will nearly double the size of its world headquarters in Wheeling, Illinois, a Chicago suburb. The company will expand its state of the art manufacturing and warehouse facilities and create space for the new Engis Technology Center. 

The 54,000 square-foot, multimillion-dollar expansion will bring total space to 121,500 square-feet and enable the company to consolidate all engineering, process development labs, manufacturing, warehousing, and administrative offices into a single facility. In conjunction with this project Engis will add new manufacturing, process development and testing and measurement equipment. Construction will start in April and be completed by fall of 2011.

“This expansion demonstrates our long-term commitment to customers as a leading-edge provider of superabrasive solutions,” says Stephen Griffin, president. “For example, new automated manufacturing equipment will enable us to increase our ability to support global markets, while the Engis Technology Center will enhance our capability to develop turnkey manufacturing solutions. It also demonstrates our commitment to keep and generate future jobs in Wheeling and in the United States.”
