Bystronic breaks ground on Chicago Experience Center
- September 24, 2018
Bystronic has officially launched construction of its new Experience Center and corporate headquarters.
The 162,875 sq ft (15,131 sq m) facility will be located in the western Chicago suburb of Hoffman Estates, IL. The Experience Center will feature an advanced showroom of 30,138 sq ft (2800 sq m) where visitors can experience a range of Bystronic ‘smart factory’ sheet metal processing solutions: new technologies for laser cutting, integrated automation and storage solutions, flexible bending systems, tube and profile processing solutions, a software landscape that covers the entire sheet metal processing chain and smart services with customized ‘live’ demonstrations. The new facility will also feature a machine assembly area for laser and automation systems.
When completed next summer, the Experience Center will serve as the new hub for Bystronic US business operations including sales, service, spare parts and the refurbishing of used machines.
Until the Experience Center opens, Bystronic will continue to operate from its current facility in Elgin, IL.
