ESHA Research, Salem, Ore., will open a new training facility and branch office in Oak Brook, Ill.

“The 2,500-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility can accommodate training curriculums for a broad base of clients, everything from a 20-person classroom-style session to a one-on-one intensive training,” says Elizabeth Salvo, director of training and consulting services.

The ESHA Training Center is situated 18 miles west of downtown Chicago and 16 miles southwest of O’Hare International Airport.

“When researching facilities for our new training office, we wanted to find a centralized location, convenient for our clients to travel to, with local options for dining and entertainment, and the Oak Brook area offers all of that,” Salvo adds.

“The decision to expand our presence was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” says Craig Bennett, chief executive officer. “Our global reach requires that we continue to assess how we can be more available to our customer base and come up with appropriate solutions. Expanding into the Chicago area was the obvious next phase for ESHA.”

The new branch office and training facility will open Jan. 1, 2018.
