Mazak Optonics is moving ahead with expansion plans for their North American Headquarters in Elgin, Ill.
Mazak Optonics will break ground on the expansion of their Elgin Technology Center in an effort to enhance customer support while continuing research and development of new laser systems and automation solutions.
The expansion will feature a new auditorium, increased capacity for parts and customer service support, a new research and development center, and additional machine tool technology areas.
“Our long-term commitment to customers in North America convinced us to move forward with our expansion plans,” said Al Bohlen, president of Mazak Optonics. “The goal of this significant investment in our North American operations is to further strengthen our customer support operations while continuing to provide customers with advanced laser-cutting and automation system solutions.”
Mazak expects the project to be completed in the spring of 2021, adding more than 20,000 square-feet of additional operational facilities.
“Mazak has a long-established history of making strategic investments during such times, ensuring its readiness for the next phase of growth,” said Bohlen.
