DMG Mori USA plans to move its North American headquarters from Hoffman Estates, Illinois, USA, in order to be closer to the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago, Illinois. The company and the IIT are currently said to be seeking a suitable location near the campus, while also seeking opportunities for further cooperation.
“Being nearby the local faculties and students will promote synergy effects in research and development of new technologies on the one hand, and recruiting of young talents will be easier on the other,” explained James V Nudo, President, DMG Mori USA Inc. As part of the relocation, a large showroom will be established at the new facility, giving the company the opportunity to demonstrate a representative cross-section of its product portfolio.
A temporary office at the IIT is set to be established shortly to help DMG Mori to work together more closely with the faculties and students prior to relocation. Following the move, the Chicago Technical Center at Hoffman Estates will continue to be operated by DMG Mori USA, and the company stated that it also plans to open its North American Engineering & Automation Center at this site.
