Oelheld recently celebrated the grand opening of the company’s new U.S. headquarter building in West Dundee, IL. Along with co-presidents Philipp and Martin Storr guests included officials from the village of West Dundee, customers, vendors and neighbors.
All in all more than 200 guests enjoyed the "Oktoberfest-style" open house which featured authentic Bavarian food, music and door prizes. The day concluded with a family-style party for employees, spouses and friends.
The new 24,000 square foot building increases production and warehouse capacity and features a new R&D laboratory. With a state of the art tanker unloading station and a sunken floor in the warehouse designed as a spill containment the facility exceeds all environmental safety requirements. With automatic LED lighting and radiant floor heat it is also very energy efficient. The property allows for future expansion to 42,000 square feet.
