Quantum Design Opens New Building Doors & Employment Doors
As of April 8th, Quantum Design is officially operating out of their brand new 100,000 sqft facility. Located in Park 90, the company has consolidated four different locations under one roof.
This fast-track build-to-suit facility was possible through partnerships with the Village of Machesney Park to assist the development with an expedited permit process and both TIF and Enterprise Zone incentives.
The RAEDC assisted Quantum in identifying a location that would work well for both employees and customers. Quantum Design recognized that a move was necessary in order to become more efficient and keep up with the current growth.
Now that the move has been complete Quantum Design is hiring!
