MC Machinery Systems and its partners, The Opus Group (Minnetonka, Minnesota), Elk Grove Village and Heitman Architects (Itasca, Illinois), held an official groundbreaking ceremony June 30, 2016, at the construction site for a new corporate headquarters in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. Attendees witnessed the current land clearing and preparation of the 11.7-acre lot on which the facility will be constructed, and participated in a virtual reality experience simulating the lobby of the future headquarters.

Construction of the new, 175,000-square-foot corporate headquarters is slated to be completed December 2016. According to the company, proximity to Chicago’s interstate 90 and O’Hare International Airport were important factors when choosing the location for the new facility. Another concern was to retain its long-tenured employees by choosing a location close to the existing facility.

The new facility will include a variety of spaces tailored to accommodate customer product demonstrations, research and development, machine refurbishment, and customer support. In total, the building will feature 50,000 square feet of office space spread across two stories; 75,000 square feet of ancillary office and storage areas; and a 50,000-square-foot showroom.
