Rittal Corporation To Establish Latest US Headquarters In Schaumburg, Illinois
"We found a home in The Woodfield Corporate Center in Schaumburg, IL, and intend to be fully operational by September," says Douglas Peterson, President of Rittal Corporation, United States. "The initial phase will include relocating the company's executives, sales leadership, marketing and product management staff."
"Getting closer to our customers in order to become their first choice is a significant goal now and in the years ahead," Peterson added. "Moving to suburban Chicago with its proximity to one of the world's most accessible airports is an excellent step toward making those critical connections easier," he adds.
Rittal is actively recruiting in the Northern Illinois region to tap into the extensive pool of sales, marketing and product professionals the area has to offer.
The firm said its move to one of the most important geographic and industrial centers of the country positions Rittal to be closer to its diverse customer base in North America. Its new headquarters is part of the company's international expansion project. These projects also include a multi-million dollar upgrade to several production lines at Rittal's Urbana, Ohio, production facility, designed to provide greater capacity in manufacturing the Rittal standardized products and systems for its vital North American markets.
"With innovation as a driving force, Rittal is a technology leader worldwide in the manufacturing and development of enclosures, power distribution, IT infrastructure, software and service," points out Friedhelm Loh, owner and CEO of Rittal. The new suburban Chicago headquarters joins the Urbana Manufacturing Center of Competence and distribution centers in Texas and Nevada.
