Kawneer Announces New Chicago Location
March 15, 2011
Kawneer Company Inc. announced plans to relocate and expand its Midwest Service Center. 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, according to the announcement.
The Chicago-based service center offers stock items, a custom door line, framing systems, welding, fabrication and packing. The company says that through equipment and information systems upgrades, the Midwest Service Center will be better able to meet market demand today and into the future while remaining cost competitive. The move is scheduled to occur in the third quarter of 2011.
“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,” says Diana Perreiah, general manager, Kawneer North America. “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.”
