CAROL STREAM, IL – Antunes, a family owned and operated company specializing in the manufacturing of foodservice equipment, recently broke ground on an expansion of its manufacturing facility. The expansion will add approximately 55,000 square feet to the company’s headquarters in Carol Stream, IL.
The additional space will accommodate several advancements to Antunes’ operation, including doubling the size of the engineering lab and sheet metal fabrication area, as well as constructing a state-of-the-art water treatment lab. Additionally, the company is adding an on-site medical clinic for team members and converting to an open office concept to encourage more collaboration.
“As an industry leader, we are committed to having the operational capabilities to keep up with our customers’ growing needs,” said Antunes CEO Glenn Bullock. “This expansion not only allows us to reconfigure our manufacturing layout to increase capacity, but also gives us more resources to expand our product lines in order to provide solutions to our existing and potential customers.”
Antunes was established as a part of the Chicagoland business community in 1955 and since that time has occupied six different locations. In 1998, the leadership team’s commitment to keeping the business in Illinois led them to break ground on their current company headquarters.
The manufacturing expansion is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
