The Opus Group announced today the completion of WEN Power Tools HQ, a build-to-suit development located in West Dundee, Illinois. WEN Power Tools has consolidated its three local facilities and workforce to streamline warehouse and distribution operations at its new headquarters.
The 180,623-square-foot building is three times larger than the previous facilities combined and features 4,000 square feet of office space, a 1,900-square-foot showroom, 21 dock doors, two drive-in doors and 32-foot clear height. Additionally, there is a 2,000-square-foot future office build-out on the north side of the building, which the company will lease out on a short-term basis.
“We've established a strong rapport with WEN Power Tools in order to bring their long-term vision of expanding their business to life. This new facility meets their operational needs as well as the needs of their workforce –all ahead of schedule," said Jim Caesar, regional vice president of construction for Opus.
“The Opus teams have been professional and responsive throughout this entire process. They have delivered what they promised and we are very pleased with the result," said Larry Wang, president of WEN Products.
Opus provided the development services and was the design-builder, interior designer and architect and structural engineer of record. This development was Opus's eighth project in Oakview Corporate Park, following the recent completions of HELUKABEL and Renishaw.
