Helukabel USA, a manufacturer and supplier of cable, wires and accessories, recently held an open house and “cable ribbon”-cutting ceremony to officially open its new 75,000-square-foot U.S. headquarters in suburban Chicago, IL.
The new facility sits on an eight-acre parcel in the Oakview Corporate Park at 1201 Wesemann Drive in West Dundee. This is the first phase of a buildout that allows for future on-site expansions to accommodate a facility of over 200,000 square feet as the company continues to grow. This investment marks an important milestone in the company’s short history in the United States as it solidifies its continued commitment and expansion in North America. This build-to-suit, newly constructed facility has been designed and built specifically to harmonize operational processes and streamline workflow. Increasing the racking capacity by more than 100 percent will allow orders to be processed faster, provide greater product availability, and improved lead time.
Helukabel USA which started operations in 2007 in a 13,000-square-foot facility and expanded into a 43,000-square-foot facility just five years ago, has quickly grown in the U.S. industrial cable and wire sector focusing on high product availability and short lead times.
“The demand for our branded products such as TRAYCONTROL, TOPFLEX, and TOPSERV has required us to rapidly increase our warehousing capacity and operational capabilities in a short period of time,” said Helukabel USA President Markus Dannheim. “Since our founding 11 years ago, we have physically moved two times in order to maintain inventory levels that allow us to provide products faster than industry standards so that we continue to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
