Herrmann Ultrasonics is currently in the process of adding 10,000 square feet to their U.S. headquarters in Bartlett, IL. After almost 30 years in the American market, the ultrasonic manufacturer will increase its footprint to 30,000 square feet.
This expansion will support Herrmann’s planned growth over the next six years, allowing for additional manufacturing space and increased employee growth.
“We look forward to the additional space, not only to strengthen our ability to deliver high-quality ultrasonic parts on time, but in addition the increased space will allow us to expand our workforce to include even more skilled, experienced team members,” said Uwe Peregi, Executive VP and GM.
The expansion will include:
- A new training and buy-off center for customer seminars and hands-on technology training
- An all-new Packaging and Metals Lab for material trials and testing
- A newly designed office space.
General contractor Reiche Construction, which is working on the project, expects the construction to be complete by mid-June. Upon completion, Herrmann Ultrasonics will host a technology day for customers and friends where inspiring ultrasonic workshops will take place that cover every aspect of ultrasonic welding. Theoretical knowledge and engaging live demonstrations will also be available — whether you’ve worked with ultrasonic joining technology in the past or not
Herrmann Ultrasonics has become one of the top technology providers in ultrasonic welding, developing advanced products, providing ultrasonics engineering expertise, as well as total solutions offerings. The company is focused on providing ultrasonic welding technology for various markets, such as the medical, automotive, consumer, electronics, battery, food, and hygiene industries.
Continuous growth of their plastics, packaging, and non-wovens, including the newly developed metals division, has allowed the company to establish technology centers throughout North America and Mexico. The expansion of the U.S. headquarters will allow the company to support growing markets and demands.
