Construction is underway on the 192,880 square foot build-to-suit warehouse and office facility for Alton Industry. The power tool fabricator will relocate its U.S. operations from Batavia, Illinois to a new 12-acre site in West Chicago within the Fox Valley industrial submarket.
“Alton is dedicated to making performance-driven products in the power tool industry, and we are grateful to have been selected as design-builder for their North American facility in West Chicago,” said George Olmos, CFO/Partner. “As a global leader offering DeWalt, Stanley, Briggs & Stratton, and Porter Cable products, the new location will allow our client to streamline both operational and product development processes for their retail partners including Home Depot, Lowe’s, Harbor Freight and Amazon”.
The precast and structural steel warehouse is a state-of-the-art building with 32-foot clear height ceilings.MHC assisted Alton with site selection and due diligence, as well as optimizing the design and layout of the building on the site to accommodate both current needs and future expansion.
The new facility is strategically located within the DuPage Business Center, the region’s premier business park development. With convenient transportation access to I-88, I-355 and DuPage Airport, the 640-acre park offers innovative industrial and R&D firms a key location for regional operations and national headquarters.
