NSK America, a provider of high speed machine tool spindles, has moved into a new facility in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.
At 26,000 square feet, the facility is significantly larger than the company’s previous, 8,000-square-foot U.S. headquarters. Much of the extra space is devoted to storing extra inventory as well as an expanded service department. The new building also houses a showroom and a training facility for both distributors and customers.
The move comes on the heels of a significant increase in business for NSK, says Dick Garski, senior sales manager. After a record year in 2008, sales dipped slightly in 2009 only to rebound for another record year in 2010. “This year will be another record year unless the bottom falls out of it,” Mr. Garski says.
