HELUKABEL, a major global manufacturer and supplier of cable, wires and accessories, held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday, November 9 for its new U.S. headquarters. The eight-acre property is located in the Chicago suburb of West Dundee.
The initial buildout will be for a 75,000-square-foot facility, with 7,000 square feet allotted for office space and the remaining to be used for warehousing the company’s in-stock cabling products and accessories. The site allows for further expansion just beyond 200,000 square feet as the company continues to grow into the future.
HELUKABEL USA has been rapidly growing since it was originally founded at the end of 2007. “This is the second physical expansion over the past 10 years. The company initially started out in a 13,000-square- foot facility and we expanded into a 43,000-square-foot facility just five years ago,” said HELUKABEL USA President Markus Dannheim. “It was important to find a property in close geographic proximity to our current location to maintain our existing employee base. Our employees and the relationships they have created with customers around the world are a fundamental key factor for the continued success our company has experienced over the past years. It was furthermore important for us to have immediate Interstate access to minimize lead-times for our customers. West Dundee and their pragmatic and progress-oriented city officials made it an easy decision for us to invest within their city limits,” he continued.
The acquisition of this property and construction of its own building is reportedly an important strategic milestone for HELUKABEL USA, creating additional office space for a growing employee base as well as an increased operational and warehousing footprint to facilitate future growth.
