Opus Leverages Build-to-Suit Expertise for HELUKABEL USA Inc.

​Leveraging their extensive build-to-suit and industrial and office development expertise, Opus developed, designed and built a new U.S. headquarters for HELUKABEL, a German-based manufacturer and supplier of cables, wires and accessories.

The new U.S. headquarters is situated on eight acres in Oakview Corporate Park in West Dundee, Ill, near Chicago. With 75,000 square feet of space, the building is nearly double the size of HELUKABEL's previous headquarters, which was a leased space in Elgin, Ill., about five miles from Oakview Corporate Park. Designed to accommodate HELUKABEL's growing workforce and business, the site includes space to expand to 200,000 square feet. The new facility includes 7,000 square feet of office space and warehouse space with 28-foot-clear height, one drive-in door and four loading docks. 

This is Opus' seventh project in the Oakview Corporate Park and the fifth international company to build a North American headquarters facility in the park. Opus' portfolio of work in the area includes headquarter facilities for Renishaw Incorporated and oelheld U.S. Inc., as well as a speculative industrial warehouse, Leafs Ice Centre, a warehouse facility for Maxzone Vehicle Lighting Corporation and two warehouse and office facilities for King Shan. The park has two remaining sites that could accommodate up to three buildings.
