TRUMPF grows with Chicago expansion
- Published: November 19, 2015
TRUMPF plans to expand its operations with a new 50,000 sq ft facility in Chicago, IL, that will house a Technology Centre and a Centre for Excellence for Industry 4.0. The facility will be completed by mid-2017.
The facility will be located on five acres of land adjacent to Interstate Highway 90 in Hoffman Estates, an area known as "machine tool alley" because of the number of machine tool builders and associated suppliers located in the area.
The Technology Centre will focus on integrating automation, material and information flow with machine tools. It will also feature TRUMPF's latest technologies and will combine an automation centre with research and development.
The facility is expected to host visitors from North America, Europe and Asia for machine tool demonstrations as well as experiencing live sheet metal production with automated and flexible machine tools and processes.
