Herrmann Ultrasonics announced plans to add 10,000 square feet to its Bartlett, Ill., headquarters, 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,” says Uwe Peregi, executive vice president and general manager.

The expansion will include a new training/buy-off center for customer seminars and hands-on technology training, an all-new packaging and metals lab for material trials and testing, as well as newly designed office space.

Construction, under general contractor Reiche Construction, Inc., Wauconda, Ill., is expected to be complete by mid-June.
