Kawneer to relocate, expand Chicago service center

Post Time:Mar 15,2011Classify:Industry NewsView:129

In a continued effort to strengthen its operating footprint and invest in long-term growth, officials at Kawneer Co., Norcross, Ga., an Alcoa business, announced plans to relocate and expand its Midwest service center in Chicago, according to a March 15 release. The move to a larger facility in Chicagois scheduled for the third quarter of 2011.

The new location and increased capabilities, an investment in excess of $4 million, will nearly double Kawneer’s presence in the Midwest and will enable the installation of a new flexible fabrication line, resulting in shorter lead times and an expanded product offering for customers across the region, according to the release.

“Last year, Kawneer embarked on a strategic initiative to invest not only in accelerating our business, but to provide our customers with even more of the resources they need to expand their businesses,” said Diana Perreiah, general manager, Kawneer North America, in the release. “Providing exceptional service is a key priority for Kawneer and we have set aggressive goals for the organization to achieve the best results. As we continue to devote resources to grow with our customers, employees, products and operations, I look forward to sharing the news of even further enhancements to our service offerings throughout North America.”
