Joint manufacturer announces expansion, relocation
Belden Universal, a manufacturer of custom universal joints and mechanical power transmission products, announced its plans to move into a 40,000-sq-ft factory in Hillside, Ill., in close proximity to Belden’s current headquarters in Broadview. Relocation will proceed in staged phases this fall and is expected to conclude by late 2017. The constructed factory will accommodate manufacturing technologies, Lean equipment layout and automated workflow for increased efficiency and better overall customer experience. Ergonomic design throughout the building will further enhance employee productivity and job satisfaction.
"We are extremely proud to move into our new building in the very near future. The larger, modern facility will allow us to continue delivering highly innovative products and quality service to our customers and provide an improved work environment to our employees," says Perry Sainati, president of Belden Universal.
