Engis Corp., a provider of superabrasive finishing solutions for lapping, honing, polishing and grinding, today announced expansion plans that will nearly double the size of its world headquarters in Wheeling, IL, a suburb of Chicago. The company will expand its manufacturing and warehouse facilities and create space for the new Engis Technology Center.
The 54,000-sq ft, multi-million-dollar expansion will bring total space to 121,500 sq ft 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 is expected to be complete by fall of 2011.
