UK-based metal 3D printing company Renishaw has announced it will be moving its North American headquarters to a new office and warehouse facility in West Dundee, Illinois, a mere 40 miles from Chicago. According to the company, the change of headquarters to a larger, multipurpose facility signals the company’s intentions to grow within the North American market.

The new space, a two-story building than spans 133,000 square feet, will contain a new office space for the headquarters, as well as a warehouse and distribution facility. The new premises will also be equipped to design, develop, and test 3D printed products. Finally, the new West Dundee location will also be the site of Renishaw’s new U.S. Additive Manufacturing Solutions Center, geared towards the advancement of additive manufacturing. The new center, which will be a part of Renishaw’s growing global network of Solutions Centers, is expected to open next year.

The Solutions Centre, which will provide businesses with the space and resources necessary for exploring the adoption and integration of 3D printing technologies, is one of Renishaw’s biggest focuses. As Sir David McMurtry, Chairman and CEO of Renishaw explained, “We can give companies cost-effective, hands-on experience of metal additive manufacturing, combined with application engineering support to optimize their design, and post-processing capabilities to ensure that it performs as it should.”

The opening of the new headquarters will be celebrated this March with a ribbon-cutting event. According to a press release, Renishaw is expecting to be completely moved in and have the new location fully operational by October 2017. For logistics purposes, the new address is listed as 1001 Wesemann Drive, West Dundee, IL 60118, though all other contact info will remain the same as it was.

The new office marks a step towards further expanding within the U.S. market. Other locations, such as regional technical and sales offices throughout the country are also in the works, says the company. The goal? To get closer to customers and potential clients, making their 3D printing services and expertise as reachable as possible.

“With the popularity and adoption of Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory philosophies, our products and services are relevant to a larger and more diverse group of manufacturing operations,” commented Howard Salt, President of Renishaw, Inc. “These new facilities makes it more feasible, logistically, for us to work cooperatively with customers and potential customers in North America, and develop solutions specific to them.”

Renishaw also opened a 3D printing Solutions Center in Pune, India last year, in the hopes of proliferating metal additive manufacturing. Renishaw is currently one of the UK’s leading suppliers of metal additive manufacturing systems.
