Mazak Optonics Corp. has announced that it is planning to move into a new, $10 million North American headquarters complex, in Elgin, IL, by December of 2008. Construction of the new facility — located on a highly visible, eight-acre parcel of land on the northwest corner of Interstate 90 and Randall Road in Elgin — will begin later this month.

The new facility will compliment the new 100,000-square-foot laser manufacturing plant currently being completed in Minokamo, Japan, according to Mazak Optonics president Bill Citron.

The new Elgin complex will total 50,000 square feet, doubling the space the company currently occupies in Schaumburg. A two-story office building will provide 20,000 square feet of administrative and training space. A 25,000-square-foot showroom with a 37-foot ceiling and a 20-ton crane will allow the installation of up to 18 machines for demonstration and training, and more than doubles the company's current capabilities. A parts distribution center will occupy 5,000 square feet, which more than doubles the current facility, and will house more than $4 million in space parts.

"The new building's biggest advantage for customers will be the ability to have a dedicated fleet of machines available for training," Citron said.

He adds that the entire complex is designed with expansion in mind. Already on the horizon: A machine rebuilding and refurbishing operation and a 100-person auditorium.
