TRUMPF expands in Chicago

Announced at Fabtech 2015 in Chicago, IL, by senior VP Burke Doar, TRUMPF (Farmington, CT) has grown to more than 50 locations and 10,000 employees worldwide, with sales in excess of $3 billion. In 2016, the company will expand once again, with a new location in North America.   

In October 2015, TRUMPF purchased approximately five acres of land adjacent to Interstate Highway 90 in Hoffman Estates, a northwestern suburb of Chicago. Located within one of the core zones of the sheet metal business in North America, this site will serve as the future home of the TRUMPF Technology Center and the center of excellence for Industry 4.0. 

Concept plans for TRUMPF's Technology Center in Hoffman Estates, IL.

The new Technology Center will focus on integrating automation, material, and information flow with machine tools. It will also feature the company's latest technologies designed to benefit manufacturers and the next generation of manufacturing engineers. The state-of-the-art facility will combine an innovative automation center with research and development, driving towards “one-piece-flow” sheet metal production capabilities.   

The Technology Center will be approximately 50,000 sq. ft., based on the most recent concept plans. Visitors will include those from North America, Europe, and Asia for system and machine demonstrations, and to observe and be part of live sheet metal production with highly automated and flexible machine tools and processes.
