Automation control specialists, Quantum Design, planning to construct 100,000 SF building in Machesney Park
MACHESNEY PARK, IL – On Monday evening, the Village’s Administration and Finance Committee recommended approval of terms for a development agreement with Quantum
Design Inc., to facilitate the company’s construction of a 100,000 square-foot headquarters building in Machesney Park near the intersection of Interstate 39-90 and Route 173.
Quantum Design, Incorporated is a leader in the automation control industry providing complete turnkey solutions from design engineering through control panel assembly to several manufacturing industries. The company owns three additional product lines designing and fabricating equipment for a variety of industries including the web converting, printing and steel industries. Quantum’s new headquarters will bring together its engineering and manufacturing divisions under one roof.
President Danny Pearse noted that Quantum Design’s progress is a result of their customer-driven success model. “Our new headquarters will provide greater efficiencies for our operations,” said Pearse, also noting that “Our company’s recent acquisitions of Centro-Metalcut, Keene Technology and Quantum Roll Sheeters have prompted the need for a larger building to accommodate our growth.”
The Village’s pledge to support the development of Quantum’s building includes the construction of a roadway and public utilities along with tax increment financing. Village President Steve Johnson referenced Quantum Design’s new building in his state of the community address on Monday night and applauded the company for locating in Machesney Park. “This project is a huge win for the Village and for area residents who work at Quantum Design,” said Mayor Johnson.
Village officials have procured design engineering for the public improvements and will commence construction this summer. LandMark Development will simultaneously construct the building for Quantum Design. Quantum plans to move its 90 employees into the new building in early 2019.
