New facility will be used for engineering, manufacturing and assembly of water treatment solutions
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will join a host of dignitaries from state, federal and local government at the formal opening of Culligan Intl.’s new expanded facility in Libertyville, Ill. The expansion features 217,000 sq ft of manufacturing, assembly, warehousing and office space. Approximately 75,000 sq ft is dedicated to manufacturing — triple the space of its previous facility. The facility also features two full bays of assembly floor space for large jobs, providing ample space to execute large, complex capital projects that include Culligan’s portfolio of technologies used in industrial markets such as oil and gas, food and beverage, and energy and power.
In addition, the expanded space enables Culligan to assemble as many as five mobile water treatment containers, speeding delivery for customers who need mobile water treatment solutions for fast response, supplemental, temporary or emergency situations. The new facility also enables Culligan to bring together design and application engineers and project managers in one location, streamlining the development of solutions for clients across a wide array of industries.
The opening is scheduled to take place Tuesday, July 16, at 1540 Harris Rd., Libertyville, Ill., with remarks and opening ceremonies beginning at 11 a.m. Participants will be available for one-on-one interviews following the opening ceremonies, and Allan Connolly also will be available following the facility tours. The facility tour, including the manufacturing and assembly areas, will offer excellent visuals and photo opportunities.
